The Venus Terrace

In the wake of the restoration of the terrace wall, 1999 saw the rebuilding of the Venus Terrace afore the southern castle façade, this in accordance with listed building requirements. The terrace with its historical fountain system was given a row of square-cut lime trees, a lawn with rose bushes, and a cone-shaped flowerbed which is colourfully planted every year in keeping with the horticultural – and geometric – practice of the Gründerzeit or Wilhelmine Era. The Venus Fountain was also re-activated so that today once again water gurgles into the two basins below.
