Long Description:
Centerpiece of the Japanese Garden is a traditional Japanese tea house, situated at a small pond. During the summer months, traditional Japanese tea ceremonies are held. You can also book classes on calligraphy, Taiko drums, or Japanese scent ceneromies.

The garden is the central part of a large park area situated between the Congress Center (CCH) and the fairgrounds (Hamburg Messe). Its classic Japanese outlines fit astonishingly well into the European surroundings, and it is a place of tranquility in the heart of a large city.
