A Sensory Trip
Like travelling into another world - a botanic oasis, where every sense is nursed.
The Parade House is a quite special oasis, taking you on a trip among exotic plants to the sound of running water and cooling music. The history of the Parade House takes its beginning at the World Exhibition in London in 1851, where the impressive growth house "Crystal Palace" sent an inspiration wave through Europe.
Count Christian Conrad Sophus Danneskiold-Samsøe took up the post as supreme manager at Gisselfeld in 1869. His wife was British, and his heart beat warmly for flowers and plants. In 1876 he built the beautiful and unique orangery - inspired by the English landscape style - after a drawing by architect Herholdt.
Today the Parade House is leased by Stig Lauritsen, Garden Designer - known from the garden programme on TV2 "Have haves", among other things - and Greg Kobett, Landscape Architect. They are running the Parade House as a house for sensory experiences, focusing on historical and exotic plants. In the Parade House you will also find a small shop selling flowers and art ware for connoisseurs.
