For the first time, Germany's biggest garden show is being staged across an entire Eastern German region. It traces the route of the River Havel from Havelberg to Brandenburg.
BUGA is bigger than ever this year. The show is being sited in five different locations in two different German states. Visitors will be able to admire some one million flowers in 50 themed gardens and 55 hectares of parkland.
The River Havel is the "blue ribbon" that runs as a theme through the show, which stretches over 80km.
