The most Beautiful Park of
Northern Europe with Botanic Rarities
From the time when Peder Oxe built his castle, Gisselfeld Kloster has been surrounded by parks. The look of these parks has changed several times as new tendencies within garden architecture have appeared. The present park appears as an English landscape garden and was laid out during the 19th century. The park is considered one of the most beautiful parks in Northern Europe and holds many botanic rarities. The area is approximately 40 hectares, half of which is carp ponds. The first ones were built by Peder Oxe and are considered the first fish farms in Denmark.
A walk in the park is a romantic trip quite close to nature. The division of the park with water and plateaux gives a changeable landscape experience influenced by the rich bird life and the change of seasons. This very special atmosphere can be enjoyed in the Season, where the park is open to the public against purchase of an admission ticket. It is also possible to lease the park for events.
