History

Even today the palace gardens still show the creative styles of their former owners. The gardens on the south of the castle have symmetrical baroque outlines. An English garden extends across the north side; at the end of the 18th century Margrave Karl Friedrich had the zoological garden and the pheasant garden redesigned. Today, the gardens provide a place for sport, games and relaxation in the middle of the city.
