Exhibitions

Kitchen garden and pleasure garden

Take a stroll through the 3,300-square-metre kitchen garden and pleasure garden with its old crop plants and rare vegetables. The historic vegetable cellar gives an interactive insight into the history of the garden and the work of ProSpecieRara.

Kitchen garden and pleasure garden: rare variety

The combined kitchen garden and pleasure garden at Wildegg Castle is the perfect place to stroll, smell the scents and marvel at the flora. Old, barely remembered vegetable varieties grow in the borders, while the flowers and shrubs fill the air with their fragrances.

In collaboration with ProSpecieRara, old varieties such as the purple artichoke, skirret and tree onion are cultivated here. Stroll through the garden and appreciate the plant diversity of the 18th century!

Vegetable cellar: a word with gardener Bruno

In the historic vaulted cellar, where tools were once stored and plants wintered, you will now meet Julie von Effinger. In her talking portrait, the last lady of the castle discusses the latest developments in the castle garden with gardener Bruno. The vegetable cellar also showcases the work of the ProSpecieRara Foundation, which cultivates and propagates rare vegetable and ornamental plant varieties in the kitchen garden and pleasure garden.
