The castle park - a place to linger and enjoy
Immediately after the castle was built (1576), Duke Adolf von Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorf had gardens built around the castle. The gardens supplied the kitchen as well as being for enjoyment. The site was later transformed into a park. During its restoration, elements of the former Renaissance garden were renewed, but parts were also created as an English landscape garden.
If you go for a walk here, you will become aware of lush tree tops, wonderful views and beautiful reflections in the Mill Pond.
Here you can let your mind wander.
The park owes its valuable mature trees to its eventful history. These trees include small-leaved-, large-leaved- and Hungarian silver lime, as well as English, Turkey and American red oaks. The Friends of Schloss Reinbek e.V. have had the most valuable trees assessed by experts and have made the information available to visitors (castle foyer).
