Castles and gardens
Discover Stormarn's royal side. Fairytale castles nestled into the landscape take you by surprise when they come into sight. The most famous one is the brilliantly white Castle Ahrensburg with its four towers. But Castle Reinbek, the only castle which, from a historical point of view, is actually a palace, is well worth a visit not to be missed. Stormarn's gardens and parks also tell stories of aristocratic times. From Baroque garden to Chinese garden, from romantic to structured - in Stormarn you will find garden art in various designs.
The French garden Jersbek invites you for a walk between Linden alleys and hedge-lined paths, reflecting past glamorous garden art. Jersbek manor park was completed in 1740 and was a magnificent example of a baroque garden at the time. The old quarter layout, the alleys, the "Twelve Apostles" and the hegde-lined paths have been preserved to this day and show the basic structure of the original garden.
The gardens are freely accessible all year round.
