The Royal Garden in the New Palace in Bayreuth, Germany

The Royal Garden or the Court Garden, called in German as the Hofgarten is a garten in the New Palace (Neues Schloss) in Bayreuth in the state of Bavaria, Germany.

We had a sightseeing in Bayreuth and some of the sights we visited were the New Palace and its Court Garden, the Eremitage and the Old City of Bayreuth.

These images we took during our visit last August 2009.

After the New Palace was built, the garden, which had been margravial property since the end of the 16th century, was redesigned and extended: south of the pall mall alley dating from 1679, which was included in the new garden, Friedrich and Wilhelmine von Brandenburg-Bayreuth added avenues, hedge gardens, pergolas and parterres. The central axis was a canal with a right-angled bend and four islands.

At the end of the 18th century, the court garden was transformed into an English-style park with winding paths and natural stands of trees. However, the basic features of the geometric garden can still be seen: the park is dominated by the canal and the three main avenues and in 1990 the parterre in front of the south wing was also reconstructed.

Another brilliant piece of work on your blog. I must say I envy this of Europe, so easy to go from one place to the next. The hard part is having your keen sense of what is there to highlight. Love the pics!

Thanks for the history. I once lived for a year in Berlin and loved their parks -always so well planned out and kept up! Have forgotten where Bayreuth is?
