Originally connected to the Courtyard Garden, the area of the Oberdieck Garden was separated from it when the imposing Löwentor building was constructed in 1925. The original plans for the garden, which was named after the pomologist Oberdieck, were drawn up by Carl Wilczek. His idea of creating an architectural garden divided into terraces and quadrangles is still in evidence today. The terraces in the garden are home to a diverse range of plants. You can look forward to:

  • roses, aromatic and medicinal plants
  • wild orchids
  • kalmias, azaleas and accompanying herbs
  • intersectional peonies and crab-apples
  • Hydrangeas and companion herbaceous perennials.

If you pay attention as you walk through the garden, you can sense the vibrancy of the scenery imbued by the many different shades of green and contrasting shapes and sizes of the shrubs used. Highlights of the year in the garden include the abundance of blossom in spring and summer, as well as the shades of the foliage in autumn.
