Rezensionen

Perlentaucher-Notiz zur Süddeutsche Zeitung-Rezension

Ein "schöner und reich ausgestatteter Bildband" über preußische Gärten ist das, freut sich Rezensent Gottfried Knapp. Zumal diese Gärten heute, nachdem die Spuren der Verunstaltung durch die DDR-Grenzanlagen beseitigt sind, ihren ursprünglichen Anlagen mehr ähneln als je zuvor im 20. Jahrhundert. Auch Katja Schoenes Geschichte der Gartenkunst in Preußen und Hillert Ibbekens Fotos werden gelobt. Den Lesern versichert Knapp, dass sie neben den bekannten Gärten wie Sanssouci, Sacrow oder der Pfaueninsel auch kleiner Anlagen beschrieben finden werden. Wenn jetzt noch eine Landkarte dabei wäre, wäre Knapps Glück vollkommen.
