A dream in green
Many historical drawings and plans show the garden: The lavish gardens were primarily on the south side of the palace. In the beginning, there was no overall design for the individual parts. In 1764, Friedrich Christoph Hemmerling became the first head gardener. He created the central gardens using pre-existing paths. From 1766 to 1772, architect Reinhard Ferdinand Heinrich Fischer developed plans to expand the garden to the east and west. He created additional primary and secondary axes that pointed toward the palace. In the process, he followed the French garden theory forms of Antoine-Joseph Dezallier d'Argenville.
