Schloßpark gardens – a peaceful oasis of the exotic

The path takes you along the narrow alleys of the historical quarter and through the remains of the medieval town wall to the Schloßpark gardens - and into a totally different world. The town's biggest park is enchanting, and visitors cannot evade its spellbinding magic.

In the 19th century, the varying owners created a landscaped park with a small palace in the middle out of a medieval estate. It was Amalie von Anhalt-Dessau who acquired an old estate in the 18th century and gave it a new look. The von Recum and Puricelli families continued the design work. A picturesque pond dates back to the times when a moated palace stood here. Discover a host of rare trees that are well over 100 years old: Japanese pagoda tree, marsh cypress, ginkgo, Kentucky coffee tree, Caucasian walnut, Persian ironwood or northern red oak - these and many other exotic species give the park a distinctive character. The Schloßpark gardens are an island of peace and tranquillity. From here, a winding path through a small wood leads you up to Kauzenberg castle, which separates the Schloßpark gardens from the spa quarter - and, of course, you can stop by the three museums and the small café.
