'The Queens Garden' - Gråsten Castle, Jutland, Denmark

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

In the years 1935-2000 Queen Ingrid had a flower garden planted in the garden near the castle. She borrowed ideas from two gardens, Sofiero and Waldemarsudde, owned by the neighbouring Swedish royal family. The Queen was also inspired by English landscape gardener Gertrude Jekyll. Beautiful Gråsten Forest surrounds the park. The lakes once contained Duke Ernst Günther's carp stocks. Today they are called Margrethe, Benedikte and Anne Marie Lakes after Denmark's Queen and her sisters.
