The palace garden was created under Margrave Karl Wilhelm by Christian Thran gardener from 1731 to 1746 in the French baroque style. His successor, Grand Duke Karl Friedrich left areas of the garden by the gardener and Muller Saul and eventually transform from 1787 through the Garden of England appointed inspector Friedrich Schweickardt after English models. On the occasion of the Federal Garden Show 1967, replaced the palace garden in the style of an English landscape park and developed. Sculptures from the Baroque to the Modern, monuments, fountains from various periods and the large lake animate and accentuate the green space.

This is an overview of Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)

And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.

Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.

Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!

Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.

But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.

Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.

And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.
