Landscaped gardens are not only a beautiful and striking setting, they are also a space for rest and relaxation. Six private landscaped gardens have joined together to form a 'Garden tour of Germany' that gives visitors the chance to explore and admire these horticultural gems. The new tour takes in Gutspark Marihn in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Lütetsburg Palace Park in East Friesland. The route then continues via the landscaped parks of Anholt Castle and Dyck Castle in North Rhine-Westphalia. In the south of Germany the bond between culture and nature is plain to see at Friedrich von Gienanth Park, Mainau Island and the picturesque park at Dennenlohe House.
