The Fairy-Tale Garden at Baroque in Bloom
Be enchanted by mysterious creatures in a magical realm. Where does the Frog Prince live? What does Sleeping Beauty look like? What tricks do Max and Moritz play? How tall is Rübezahl?
Handsome princes and enchanting princesses, cheeky imps and mysterious mythical creatures dwell in the Fairy-Tale Garden. They wait for big and small children to lead into their fantastical magical world. Why not climb onto the throne of the Water Lily King? Take a boat ride on the fairy-tale stream, visit the Frog Prince, meet Sleeping Beauty or join in exciting adventures with Sinbad, Aladdin and Ali Baba. Endless little adventures await you!
Call out: "Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!" No sooner said than done. There it comes! But as soon as Rapunzel realises that there isn't a prince waiting below, the plait will stop half-way down. The mirror on the wall isn't as exacting. Even without a wicked stepmother in front of it, it will still give the famous answer: "You are the fairest of them all."
"When children smile and their eyes light up with joy, it is worth more to me than the approval of a hundred bearded old men," the inventor of the Fairy-Tale Garden, Albert Schöchle, once said. And when you see the children in the Fairy-Tale Garden, you will know what he meant.
Over the years and decades since 1959, the Fairy-Tale Garden has regularly gained new attractions. It all began in 1959 with nine fairy-tale scenes. Now the garden boasts over 40.
The Fairy-Tale Garden has lost none of its charm over the years. On the contrary: thanks to careful additions, the experience has been continuously improved, without appearing ostentatious and without trying to ape the attractions of modern leisure parks.
The creators of Baroque in Bloom are firmly convinced that this way of experiencing fairy tales stimulates the imagination, especially for children. Fairy tales are a unique art form, which have lost none of their fascination, even in this era of electronic games and virtual reality.
