Baroque broderie

The broderie parterre was laid out on a level plane by horticultural director Albert Schöchle in 1961, based on historical examples.

The almost square feature is dominated by a circular central lake with a fountain, where four diagonal paths meet. Strips of lawn border the four sections, which feature colourful flower borders, enhanced by pots of artistically pruned plants.

Each section displays a "medallion" with one of the four coats of arms of the duchy of Württemberg: the diamonds of Kirchheim/Teck, the heathen of Heidenheim, the barbel fish of Mömpelgard and the imperial storm flag of Markgröningen.

The rooms in the old corps de logis and the terrace below offer wonderful views of the outsize "embroidery" – the literal meaning of the word broderie.
