Goethe-Institut Garden

A garden dedicated to music

Open on days:


10:00 — 18:00

Campo Mártires da Pátria 37

In the Goethe-Institut garden, alongside the massive nettle trees (Celtis australis), you will find a wonderful example of a centenarian dragon tree (Dracaena draco).

Facing the gardens of Campo Mártires da Pátria, home to many trees of significant stature, we find the entrance of the Goethe-Institut, which also leads to its garden.

Hidden behind the façade of the old Palácio de Valmor, the patio of the Goethe-Institut garden transforms itself during the summer months into the famous stage of JiGG – Jazz im Goethe-Garten, when music resonates through the fronds of the surrounding trees.

Conversation on Urban Environmental Justice

– How to build a greener Lisbon for all?

Is it possible to plan cities that are environmentally friendly while still offering solutions for the urban populace’s necessities? How can the processes that lead to the creation of green spaces as well as their use be truly fair, inclusive and collaborative? In the year that Lisbon acts as the Green Capital of Europe, the Goethe Institute and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in Portugal unite with Jardins Abertos, in order to share and debate the central questions underlying a process that is being developed by representatives of various initiatives in Lisbon, as part of the project “Retake the City”.

More information at Goethe-Institut Portugal and Fundação Friedrich Ebert.
