Derived from the original form of the Christian Gardens, the monastic crossroads, a "modern" monastery garden was built in Marzahn town. A square garden area with a path made of light gravel, planted areas of beech, white shrubs and a water basin as a symbol of water as a source of life. Marianne Mommsen and Gero Heck Architects have designed the garden.
The main attraction at the Christian Garden is the transformation: Gold painted and horizontally arranged metal lines, form an amazing attraction to visitors. Within these lines, texts from the Old and New Testaments are written. This reminds every park visitor that Christianity is a religion of books and scripture.
21 hectares of gardening for all.

The Christian Garden is the ninth themed garden on the land. Also, this park includes other themed gardens which are a Chinese garden, a Japanese, a Balinese, an Oriental, a Korean and an Italian Renaissance garden.
