When the visitor reaches the rose garden, a wonderfully intimate garden space with a charming character opens up. No matter from which direction, we enter this area designed at the beginning of our community. Once a small garden of medicinal plants, we are now greeted from all sides by the ‘queen’ of flowers: the rose.
Giving this particular garden a frame are palms of all sizes and varieties. An elevated, large bed presents itself with a variety of old and new rose varieties in beautiful colours. In each season there are appropriate accompanying plants. Mme. Boll, a portland rose with an intense scent gives us pink flower crowns from June to November, which are heavily filled. This upright rose is at the peak of the raised bed. An old jasmine bush leads us to a somewhat hidden garden bench.
Here you will find the secretive heart of the rose garden: an enchanting pond, surrounded by many irises and cattails, with goldfish frolicking and frogs laying their spawn in the spring.

Next to the pond is a rose arch on which the beautiful “Blossom Time” invigorates us. It invites the visitor into two circles of roses that give us an abundance of English roses with their large, wonderfully fragrant flowers. Zinnia, coneflowers, larkspurs, bluebells, phloxes and iris accompany the roses and frame them. In the middle of the circle a French fountain splashes and invites birds to drink and children to refresh.
A walnut tree divides one side of the rose garden. Nearby, we are greeted by King and Queen, two graceful oak figures by Waltraud Schroll. The sign ‘Rasen
