This 3000 square metre garden surrounds a typical German farmhouse and was started 40 years ago. There are several garden rooms, all very well maintained by a mother and daughter who are keen gardeners. There is a vegetable garden, nice trees and shrubs, a pond and more than 100 different roses are flowering in summer.

Spring is a highlight in this garden, thousands of bulbs have been planted as tulips, alliums, daffodils and fritillarias combined with flowering crab apples and other spring flowering shrubs. A lovely cherry tree gives shade to a circular bench in back garden, there are hidden seating areas and spring containers planted throughout the garden.
