Museums/Exhibitions

Garden Dreams excursions not only take you to a variety of garden and landscape designs of past centuries. Many palaces and manor houses in the Garden Dreams parks also offer exhibitions and a chance to learn more about local histories, special features in the park, or art and culture.

1. Krumke Palace and Garden

Permanent Exhibition “A Passion for Boxwood”

An approximately 400-year-old boxwood hedge is the hallmark of Krumke Palace Gardens. The exhibition (“A Passion for Boxwood”) is devoted to this popular ornamental shrub. Its place in horticulture, its care and diseases, its propagation, and its use in medicine: These questions and more are answered on the 35 permanently mounted panels with 250 images in the rock cabinet and around the park.
