Japan Feeling in Erfurt

As a German you sometimes wish for experiencing something exotic and foreign – at least I do. If your bank account tells you that a journey to the other side of the world is not going to happen in the near future a trip to a local area will help a bit to cure the feeling which we call “Fernweh” in Germany.

If your bank account tells you that a journey to the other side of the world is not going to happen in the near future a trip to a local area will help a bit to cure the feeling which we call “Fernweh” in Germany.

By the way, there is no real equivalent for the word “Fernweh” in English which is a shame in my opinion. Not only Germans have this longing for travelling, for experiencing foreign things and people, and for escaping from your everyday life. (I know that there is “wanderlust”, but that’s not the same).

Anyway, the little Japanese Garden in Erfurt is one of these spots where you can feel a bit like being abroad. It is part of the ega-Park which is a huge garden area with all kinds of flowers, exhibition areas, barbeque places, and green houses filled with butterflies.

The Japanese Garden is pretty small, but very nice. There are little pagodas and water falls.

Honestly, the entrance fee is quite high for poor lomographers (6 Euro, reduced 4.80 Euro). However, from 5pm you only have to pay an entrance fee of 2 Euro (reduced 1.50 Euro). So this is especially a tip for summer time when days are long.

Tram station: ega, line 2
