Zappeion - National Garden

The first trees in the Zappeion Gardens were planted in 1857

The architect Theodore Hansen, while revising the drawings for the Zappeion Exhibition Hall, also designed the layout of the gardens. According to architectural historian Constantine E. Biris, the design was executed by the French Architect Desire Matton incorporating some changes.
The Zappeion Gardens, initially in French geometrical style, were later redesigned in the free curved lines of the English garden. The planting was supervised by the Athenian agriculturist Antionios Schmitt, son of the Bavarian chief-gardener of the King’s Garden Frederik Schmitt.
