Beautiful oasis for everyone
The Japanese Gardens can be found between the Bayer production facilities and Leverkusen’s city border. Brought to life in 1913 by Carl Duisburg, Chair of the Supervisory and Advisory Boards of the then I.G. Farbenindustrie AG, it gave rise to a garden landscape for rarities from many parts of Eastern Asia.
Covering an area of around 15,000 square metres, the Japanese Gardens are open throughout the year and provide a beautiful oasis for everyone, whatever the season.
The Japanese Gardens merge subtly over into the premises of the Bayer Communication Centre. Here, both personnel and visitors can experience at first hand the importance of chemistry in everyday life.
