Gråsten Palace Garden

The current palace garden at Gråsten is an English-inspired landscaped flower garden, and there if virtually nothing left of the original French-inspired baroque garden. The garden is beautifully integrated into the surrounding landscape. The garden has much to offer: By following the winding paths, visitors are led on an adventure, with vistas of streams and lakes that mirror the beautiful palace. In the summer, the public can experience the garden’s magnificent plethora of colours, when the royal family are not in summer residence at the palace.

 Queen Ingrid really set her mark on Gråsten Palace Garden, making it into a blooming floral garden. She let herself be inspired by contemporary garden fashions, which emphasised diversity, colour and variation The gardens are still being developed in close dialogue with the royal family, who make their mark upon the palace gardens.

In the old days, all castles, palaces and manor houses had their own nurseries, and when Gråsten palace became the summer residence of the royal family in the 1930s, a nursery was established here as well. Plans are in place to recreate the palace nursery.
