Botanical Gardens in Berlin, Germany reopens.

Square

Wednesday, may 6, 2020. New York City – Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, zoos, botanic gardens, museums, etc. have to temporary closed.

The Guardian reports that, “Berlin’s botanical gardens, one of the city’s most loved green spaces, reopened its gates to the public on Tuesday (May 5, 2020) with May flowers in bloom as Germans began to get used to leisure activities under a strict regime of face coverings, physical distancing and online booking.

As the gardens welcomed their first visitors since mid March, visitors were promised “the fragrance of nectar in your nostrils, the sound of birdsong in your ear” in a welcome posted on the gardens’ online ticket shop.

Germany’s six-week lockdown had confined many of the city’s residents to their flats or to struggling to keep physical distance rules in overcrowded green spaces.

Petra Scharf, a regular visitor before the shutdown, said she had counted the days for it to reopen. “I have a balcony, I’m lucky, but I have missed the expanse of colour and and the smell of the blossom.””
