Palace Park – The House of Gardener

The House of Gardener

At the western entrance to the palace park there is the house that used to be the palace gardener's house. It has recently been restored on the outside.

The house is placed in a remarkable way: it is positioned oblique to the palace park. No explanation can be found for this position as it is not consistent with the other topographical and organisational facts in this part of the garden.

This house can rightfully be called old. In the 18th century it formed the north-eastern limits of the rococo gardens.

It was part of an entire complex of buildings that also comprised buildings dedicated to the upkeep of the court, to the south, and the Orangery and its theatre, to the east. Not counting the castle, this is the oldest building in the park.
