In the 16th century on this place was built half-timbered house, and next to him broke Park, guided the fashion in those time trends. Fountains, paths, sculptures - all this was intended to decorate the area, creating a harmonious image.

With the advent of the 19th century owners of the castle and Park were the manufacturers, who have to change not only the castle but the estate in General. The main emphasis was made on the interiors, which are done in the style of modernization, and has also been a significant change in the Park, or rather, created by a special system of tracks, allowing you to walk long and do not walk while on the same route. Interiors that can be seen today date from the late 80-ies of the 19th century.
