The Small Castle Garden
Every spring digging and planting takes place in the Small Castle Garden. And every summer visitors are enraptured by the colours, arrangements and aromas, as they descend the old stone steps. The Small Castle Garden, on various levels, enclosed within high white stone walls, is an oasis in which to pause during a visit to the castle.
A reception desk is located in the centre of naturum, our Visitor Centre. Here you may make enquiries, book tickets or check-in for overnight stays.
