Gardening in the tree nurseries

Trees, flowers, blossoms, meadows, and tree nurseries fill the landscape around Barmstedt.

The Ellerhop-Thiensen Arboretum’s changing flower displays enchant countless visitors, while the Castle Island Rantzauer Lake takes you back to another time. Explore the Au landscape through a relaxed bicycle tour.

The tree nursery landscape extends from Barmstedt to Uetersen and its rose park, which are connected by Germany’s first garden road.
