Rock garden, Sanspareil with oriental building

Here one sees a unique garden layout from the time of the argrave couple Friederich and Wilhelmine, who created in midst bizarre rock formations a pleasance after a literary program. It was far ahead of its time and founded in modern times an independent garden type.

In the immediate neighborhood thrones a charming medieval castle from which one can enjoy a wonderful panorama over the Franconian Switzerland.
