The 17th century garden displays a dazzling array of romantic fountains, exotic plants and striking sculptures. Events such as the International Fireworks Competition and the Small Festival in the Great Garden regularly attract large numbers of visitors – very much in the tradition of a famous former resident: the universal scholar Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz.
