A retreat for Furth

The Japanese Garden is a place of deep peace. The Japanese Garden in Furth was also created as a retreat from the hectic world. Harmony, peace and restraint determine the atmosphere there. The garden is open throughout.

Architecture and meaning

With the help of natural stones, bamboo, water basins and stone lanterns, deep symbolism simultaneously creates space for fantasy. Three Buddha stones symbolize paradise, heaven and ideals. The main characters are two dragons, one from eastern mythology and one from western mythology. Both close, surrounded by a sea of gravel structures, peace. The stone lantern stands for sun, moon and light, while the coin-shaped water bowl is intended to ensure a continuous economic cycle.

Historical Information

The idea of a Zen garden and the two peace-making dragons came from the Japanese Masumi Böttcher-Muraki, who now lives in Munich. The thirteen Japanese horticultural experts who built the garden in 2001 were commemorated with thirteen pines.

How to get there

The Japanese Garden is located directly at the back of the conference centre in Furth, next to the indoor swimming pool and school complex.
