Garden tour in German
The Grottenberg has been restored since 2020. The horticultural structure was built for the summer residence of King Frederick William III of Prussia and Queen Luise towards the end of the 18th century.
At that time, a colorful Far Eastern-style pavilion, visible from afar, crowned the hill. An apparently sunken ancient temple in memory of "dearly departed" and a grotto completed the picturesque ensemble.
After 1945, the unused site fell into disrepair and the structural remains were leveled.
However, in 2013, during archaeological excavations, surprisingly many well-preserved parts of the grotto and temple ruins were found. This enabled the reconstruction of the grotto hill, from which visitors today can again enjoy the view of the village and the landscape.
