Søholt Baroque Garden

Søholt Baroque Garden was constructed in the 1690s, inspired by the fashion of contemporary French gardens such as Versailles, and it was the first place to build the narrow avenues and paths, surrounded by geometric hedges. There was a focus on space, with light and shadow effects on the paths, and sunlight dancing through the hedges and green leaves.

Despite their age, the oldest hedge plants, hornbeam, still have new shoots every year, with new leaves every spring. In the spring, you will be stunned by the apple blossom on the old varieties of apple trees in certain sections of the garden. But the garden is a delight at whatever time of year. Take a walk through the greenery, enjoy the open space, relax with quiet reflection on one of the benches to the sound of the rustling springs, or catch a glimpse of frogs and carp in the characteristic ponds.


Opening hours:

The garden is open to the public every day from 9 am - 5 pm. Parking east of the garden in Søholtvej, DK-4930 Maribo.
