The Bundesgartenschau (abbr. BUGA) is the biennial Federal horticulture show in Germany. It also covers topics like landscaping. Taking place in different cities, the location changes in a two-year cycle.
The 2011 BUGA is arranged by Koblenz from April 15 to October 16. One of the attractions of this show will be the Koblenz Cable Car, Germanys biggest aerial lift.
With a large budget, extensive landscape architectures and gardens are realized that support the regional development objectives in the respective cities. A good general discussion on the history of the Bundesgartenschau can be found in Grounds for Review: The Garden Festival in Urban Planning and Design" by Andrew Theokas.
