The Grosssedlitz Baroque Garden: Always an Experience!
In the Grosssedlitz Baroque Garden, the French and Italian Baroque are uniquely liaised. The design of two slopes opposing each other can rarely be admired north of the Alps. The layout of the Grosssedlitz Baroque Garden has not changed since 1732 and even today the building structures are gleaming with splendor. A total of 60 sculptures – 24 of them in their original – and about 400 potted plants adorn the Garden.

Picturesque parterres and fabulous garden spaces on terraced grounds: The basic layout of the park, which was designed between 1719 and 1732, has been preserved almost completely up to this day.
History of the Baroque Garden
The Palace at Grosssedlitz was to become a resting place for retirement. But soon, two years after its completion, Augustus the Strong bought it from Count von Wackerbarth and had it redesigned to his own taste.

To Saxon kings they symbolized status: the orange tree saplings. Today, more than 100 of them adorn the Lower Terrace in the historical manner from May through September.
