Lower East Garden (Unterer Ostgarten)
The Lower East Garden was built by Duke Friedrich II around 1800 in the style of an English landscape garden with countless Mediaeval romantic elements. A variety of individual features created a harmonious whole, with the key elements of the garden being the Ice Valley, the menagerie, Emichsburg castle perched on a high rock with Emichsee lake below and the former Großer See (large lake). The landscape is shaped by dark-leafed trees and groups of shrubs. Roses, rhododendrons, shrubs, ferns and grasses laid out in a natural style add touches of colour.
