Park and Rose garden

The park was a decisive factor in the acquisition of the House for the imperial couple. It offered the former emperor not only privacy and freedom of movement, but also useful exercise. 

Rose garden

The emperor not only had a keen interest in gardening, but he also loved working in the woods himself. He constantly had the park embellished, including two rose gardens and a pinetum. It became his great pride. 

Auguste Victoria Garten

One of the former rose gardens has been completely restored: the Auguste Victoria Garten. The garden is named after Wilhelm II's first wife. You are invited to visit the rose garden. The garden contains many different varieties of roses as well as beautiful rhododendrons. If you want a taste of the beautiful floral splendour, take a look at an overview of the varieties:
