The Botanical Garden on the castle

The Altmühltal is an ancient cultural landscape.

By management and by continuous grazing of sheep in the Altmühltal for many centuries, a very specific rich flora (dry) and fauna has developed.

We are pleased to present you that biodiversity at the castle. In the vast castle, you'll enjoy over 1200 native plants, flowers, perennials, shrubs and trees and a historic herb garden with over 750 species.

Here you will find sun-loving and shade-seeking plants under the old walls. The one-year and our tree and our plant of the year.

In our wetland we cultivate the sensitive aquatic of the Altmühl area.

Two special highlights of our efforts are the botanical Historic vineyard with accompanying flora and benefit planting. Also the beautiful rose garden at the inner moat.
