French Garden

The park and garden at Schloss Berge (Gelsenkirchen) offer interesting perspectives, as passages and portals are formed by old trees. The park is divided into three areas: the French garden with its geometrical flower borders and allegorical sculptures was created during the late baroque period, whereas the widespread English landscape garden was added later. Situated between the two is a labyrinth, which encloses a lavishly laid out herb garden with espalier fruit trees and plenty of healing herbs.
