The Castle Gardens

The Mint Gate and the Mint Bridge lead from the Castle to the Baroque Garden. Christian IV had built a little Italian villa which he called "Sparepenge" (Savings) opposite the King's Wing, but it was pulled down at the beginning of the 1720s to make room for Frederik IV's Baroque Garden. The architect J. C. Krieger laid out the symmetrical garden, which follows the Castle's main axis with a long perspective extending into the landscape. The garden was altered during the following centuries, but in the 1990s it was restored, complete with cascades and parterre flower-beds. The Baroque garden is however, not the only garden on the grounds. To the left of the Baroque Garden is a romantic English-inspired garden, which is also home to the charming Bath House.
