A fun day! King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands visited Park Herzberge on their last day in Germany on Wednesday, July 7.
"In Park Herzberge, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima talk to initiators, stakeholders and children about, among other things, nature, environmental education and the history of the park," an Instagram post read about their outing. "Park Herzberge is a nature conservation area of approximately 100 hectares in East Berlin. In 1980, a local citizens' initiative started protecting the flora and fauna in the park. The area plays an important role in nature and environmental education for several schools in Berlin-Lichtenberg."
"After a walk through the park, the Royal Couple will leave for Humboldt Forum where they will visit the BERLIN GLOBAL exhibition. The exhibition shows what development Berlin has gone through and how Berlin and its inhabitants are connected to the world," the post continued. "The state visit to Germany will conclude with a themed lunch on the Year of the Volunteer in Berlin."
