The Leuna Sculpture Park: a testimony to fine art

With its sculptures and reliefs, the Plastik-Park Leuna is a unique testimony to the fine arts of the 1950s and 1960s in the GDR.
As the only major green space, it is of great importance to the garden city of Leuna and leads the way in the maintenance and development of the urban open spaces.
The park at the edge of the Gartenstadt settlement, on the western high bank of the Saale, is also the starting point for walks along the river and into the floodplain lowlands of the eastern bank of the Saale. The Saale cycle path runs below the park.

Garden City Leuna
With the settlement of the Badische Anilin- und Soda-Fabrik (BASF) in 1916 and the construction of the ammonia plant south of Merseburg, housing was needed for thousands of workers in the area, which was dominated by agriculture.
Inspired by the English garden city movement, the architect Wilhelm Karl Willy August Barth (*1877 in Wiesbaden, † 1951 in Leuna) was commissioned to plan the Neu-Rössen industrial estate as a garden city. The result was a successful coexistence of industry, work, life, living, nature and culture.
In 1996, Leuna was included in the nationwide programme for the "Promotion of Urban Redevelopment and Development Measures". The result of 20 years of urban redevelopment is impressive: A green, livable and lovable city, which today is listed as the largest area monument in the Saale district.
