About Schlosspark Eisenstadt
The Eisenstadt Castle Park is a lavishly designed landscape garden from the 19th century that is well worth seeing. It covers an area of almost 50 hectares, which extends from the northern edge of the city to Bergstrasse and far up the Leithaberg. The park is structured by four ponds and overgrown with numerous exotic plants, densely wooded areas and a chestnut avenue whose strictly geometric shape can be recognized as a fragment of an old rococo garden.
