As the seasons unfold and the years take their course the baroque gardens at Palace Schloss Hof are decked out in ever changing colours and plant varieties. Visitors stroll past broderie flower beds, pergolas and magnificent fountains laid out across seven different terraces. The ornate flower beds are a perfect delight in spring, bursting with tulips, daffodils, violets and crown imperials. The orangerie parterre is equally remarkable, its hyacinths, anemones, crocuses and crown imperials weaved together for an impressive live carpet in kaleidoscope shades of pink, blue and purple. Summer draws in with hollyhocks, spider flowers, marigolds, snapdragons, petunias and sunflowers in full bloom and finally autumn beckons with red, pink and orange dahlias.
The Terrace Gardens: New Splendour from Neptun’s Fountain to Marchtor Gate
General revitalisation is now almost complete but for a few details. Most recently the fountain on terrace seven and the small cascade were rebuilt and the elaborate wrought iron gates were restored to their original splendour. More than one thousand hours were spent to meticulously clean and preserve the gate to the grotto and the Marchtor gate, both elaborately forged by artist Oegg and undoubtedly the most valuable iron gates survived from baroque times. Several hundred years on the Terrace Gardens at Palace Schloss Hof have risen to their old glory as designed for Prince Eugene, working their full magic on the beholder.Info about the history of the Garden
