Wild romantic garden under the castle

Right in the middle of the castle village Kollnburg, the enchanting, garden of the Zankl family with approximately 1700 square meters cuddles up to the southern side of the castle. Several terraces with planted shrubs and stone walls are divided into different areas such as the berry garden, fruit-tree park and wild shrubs hedge. Through a “jungle path” you can get into the middle of the garden with a pond, patio, tomato pavilion, perennial beds with roses and various herbs and seating possibilities. An approximately 50 meters long bird protecting hedge, wild flowers, a herbs meadow and four great rose curves characterize the subsequent wild romantic rock garden below the castle. About 70 different herbs and medicinal plants grow there. Waltraud Zankl has labeled them all with ceramic plates and of course knows their curative effects and different possibilities to prepare them. She explains that – in the vernacular – behind the names “witches´ milk” and “devils´ escape” the herbs “Schöllkraut” and “Johanniskraut” are hidden because of their effect.
