The Parterre Garden (Parterregarten, formerly the Box Garden)

Due to the box hedging becoming infected with Cylindrocladium buxicola, the box was removed in autumn 2014. The planting style adopted in this garden is now based on a different approach and the garden has been renamed the "Parterre Garden".

Most of the spring and summer flower arrangements in the Parterre Garden are designed as top view plants, whose patterns are best appreciated from the vantage point of the raised Courtyard Garden.

Ever-changing decorative plants create a modern interplay of colours, shapes and sizes. Spring flowers and summer bedding form surprising combinations, some harmonious and others rich in contrast or even outlandish.

The (former) Box Garden

The Box Garden had a formal layout reminiscent of the Baroque period. Despite appearances, however, it was not a historical garden as it was not planted until the 1980s. Ever-changing decorative plants created a modern interplay of colours, shapes and sizes. Spring flowers and summer bedding produced surprising combinations, some of which were harmonious and others that were rich in contrast or even outlandish.
