Landscape Park and Wrangelsburg Lake

The Landscape Park Wrangelsburg stretches for 3 hectares (7.4 acres) along the southern shore of the palace lake.  On a stroll around the lake under old trees one can see botanic rarities like a heritage-protected ash tree, Swiss stone pines,  and field birthwort, among others.

After 1600 Christoph von Nienkerken had a fruit and leisure garden laid out behind the manor house.  In 1643 a walled Renaissance garden with borders was described.  After Carl Gustav Wrangel took over the property the garden was redesigned.  He installed a fountain, statues, and two pavilions.  In 1672 the garden was once again replanted and in the nineteenth century it was enlarged to create an English landscape garden.
