Experience, relief from stress and relax – the East Metropolitan Region has much to offer! Numerous forests, parks, lakes and rivers characterize the region and invite visitors to relax and relieve from stress. But there are plenty of cultural events, too – a large number of exhibitions and concerts, as well as a diverse range of shopping opportunities attract hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.

The International Garden Exhibition (IGA) Berlin is a special highlight in our region in 2017. Under the motto ‘An Ocean of Colors’, the International Garden Exhibition Berlin invites visitors from all over the world to Marzahn-Hellersdorf from 13 April to 15 October to experience the unique art of gardening, landscape design and culture in the heart of the urban city.

The regional management works actively to promote the region and to support actors by organizing networking events and working groups which strive for broad representation of all interested parties and encourage participation.
