Welcome to our community garden NomansLand

Please come in and enjoy this oasis of tranquility. Our garden opens daily.

Video segment by rbb Gartenzeit about our garden.

About us

We are a cooperation project of two neighboring congregations, Am Weinberg and Reconciliation. Once parted by the border and barbed wire, no-man’s land is now our flourishing garden.

The new spelling of the word NomansLand symbolizes the joining of the past and the present.


The hinterland wall was once part of the extensive border facilities, serving as deterrence and division between east and west.

It is now part of the Berlin Wall memorial along Bernauer Street and under historic protection.

Graffiti on both sides of the wall tell a simple story: nothing must stay as it was.

Gardens are places of peace, not of division and hate. In our garden people of different backgrounds and religions get together. In all cultures gardens are sanctuaries where people reflect and change. Our garden too wants to set an example of living together.

If you want to become a part of the garden, contact us.


The highest point in our garden looks out on the historic Elizabeth I Cemetery: symbol of the proximity of living and dying. The deceased make us modest and humble in light of what is beyond our control.

We all carry a responsibility for life, for those alive today and for those who come after us.

Your visit

Opening hours
The garden NomansLand is open to visitors all year round: in the summer months from the beginning of May to the end of October at 7:00 to 23:00 and in winter from the beginning of November to the end of April at 8:00 to 20:00. Sometimes we have events, which is why the garden has to be closed temporarily. We apologize.

There are two entrances to the garden NomansLand. It can be reached via the former border strip behind the Chapel of Reconciliation. The second access is via the Elisabeth I Cemetery from Ackerstraße. The opening hours of the cemetery can be found hier.
