Heidecksburg Palace Garden

Spatial art and banquet space


The palace buildings and gardens of Heidecksburg Castle are arranged on three mighty terraces whose retaining walls were erected in the 16th century. The flower and kitchen gardens were redesigned in baroque style in the 18th century. The center of the palace garden is the Schallhaus (Sound House), situated on the lower terrace. It is both a garden house and a concert building featuring special surround sound effects. Prince Ludwig Friedrich II integrated it into his design when he reshaped the gardens and surrounding area in the landscape style as of 1796. The gardens and the Sound House continue to be used for social events, concerts, brunches and dinners.
