The Baroque Garden
The large landscaped garden east of Søholt was established in the 1690s and is one of Denmark’s oldest existent baroque gardens. We do not know who the architect was, but the garden is landscaped after French principles. At that time Søholt consisted of a three-winged main building and the garden was in the middle, at a right angle to one of the side wings.
The entire garden area, which is 340 metres long and 110 metres wide was built in the style of the time, based on geometrical patterns such as circles, half circles, quadrants and straight lines.
In 2009 the present owner, Frederik Lüttichau, began renovating the garden area with financial assistance from the Realdania Foundation. The newly renovated garden was inaugurated on the 13th of June 2010. The Baroque Garden is open to the public for an entrance fee.
