15 days to go !

So says the world's biggest countdown clock on the Gamundia building wall opposite the railway station for all to see.

Measuring 5.2m high and 5.2m wide and weighing over 4 tonnes, the hand made clock by Schwäbisch Gmund firm Biegert & Funk has already won every possible design award in the world.

It switches displays every 5 minutes from normal time (written format) to countdown days to the Landegartenschau 2014.wheelchairer

The "Waldseilgarten", something similar to ‘Go Ape’, is now ready in Taubenwald, inclusive of a 200m long cable car named the "Flying Fox" and a parcour, a special course for wheelchair users.
This will allow wheelchair users to experience a tree adventure course with safe passage and spectacular views from the 6 metre high platform.

The nearly 40 metres high "Himmelsstürmer" look-out tower has been completed which from 30. April will offer a perfect view of the "Himmelsgarten" area of the Landesgartenschau as well as the grandiose panorama of the Drei Kaiserberge mountains.

Transport has been sorted out, four large articulated buses from Dresden have arrived. These will be decorated in the Landesgartenschau livery and will then be used to transport up to 100 people every quarter of an hour between the "Erdenreich" and "Himmelsgarten" areas of the show.

Live the Landesgartenschau, download the App for your smartphone or tablet and get all the latest information, news, calendar of events, webcams, opening times, entrance prices and more……

You won't miss anything as the calendar shows clearly all the events and will even transmit them direct into your calendar.

Everyday there will be news of discounted room rates for food, leisure, culture, events and shopping sent direct to you.

The building sites have slowly but surely been transformed into magnificent buildings, flowering park landscapes, exciting attractions and exhibitions. Everyone is looking forward to the start of the event.

Be there ............. between heaven and earth !
