In the German Pavilion "Garden Germany – Lab of Ideas", the expo-motto "Energy for Life" can be experienced by an overall cycle and also connected, interrelated solo-cycles. Three thematic threads – nature, culture and technology – shape the visitor routing. The water element is the "blue thread" guiding through the exhibition. A gradient landscape – an abstract cross-section of Germany – with 16 federal state houses leads the visitor from an expanse of water up to the clouds. Beneath this landscape, multi-storey glasshouses form the central exhibition area: the lab of ideas. The visitors can immerse in thematic worlds via walk-in, interactive room narratives. These illustrate a whole cycle of nutrition from cultivation via consumption to recycling. The impressive room "Adventure Garden" concludes with a multi-sensory Main Show.
