In the Stuttgart area
Park Schloss Hohenheim
The gardens of Hohenheim Castle are a popular attraction to the south of Stuttgart. Majestic trees, beautiful lakes and a wide variety of plant species create regal gardens covering an area of almost 35 hectares.
The early years
Installation dates back to the 18th century: From 1776 to 1793, Duke Carl Eugen of Württemberg ordered the transformation of a 21-hectare site into an English style landscape park. Today, the park consists of botanical gardens and the Landesarboretum – an exotic landscaped garden showcasing horticulturally interesting trees.
Thousands of plants as well as varieties of deciduous trees and conifers are still used for teaching and education purposes for university and college students, and students from Hohenheim horticultural school.
