An amphitheatre-shaped complex stands at the heart of the gardens. The outdoor stage at its centre is surrounded by grassed-in ‘steps’ where the audience can sit. Originally designed as a seasonal flower garden surrounded by benches, the area was converted into an amphitheatre even before the official opening of the gardens. Today it serves as the venue for cultural events and conferences, and the lush vegetation around it makes it a natural acoustic environment.
You are invited to check the Amphitheatre’s concert schedule. (There is no entrance fee for concerts.)
