The Botanical Roof Garden turns 20!

Augustenborg Botanical Roof Garden, which is part of the Eco City Augustenborg, began construction in 1999 and opened to visitors in 2001. The roof garden is the world's first public demo facility of green roofs. Since its opening we have hosted more than 2,500 visitors from all over the world. During our courses and guided tours, visitors get to see innovations in the green roof market and other inspiring opportunities. The roof garden has more than 20 demo areas with different structures, a range of product solutions and inspiration gardens for, among other things, urban cultivation and urban biodiversity. Several different companies have the opportunity to demonstrate different solutions here, and various tests are also underway with, among other things, substrate components, different vegetation techniques etc. The green roofs cover more than 9,500 sqm and there are about 600 meters of footbridges around so that visitors can get close without damaging the vegetation.
