A Lovely Garden by Boller Castle


In the castle garden by Boller castle are lots of beautiful roses, spice herbs,  a fuchsiagarden, a lovely pond with lotus and a Japanese garden. Boller castle lies in East Jutland a little southeast of the town Horsens near the fjord. The castle is from the 1500s.






In the garden is also the oldest oak tree in Denmark, the hollow Boller Oak, which is about 1000 year old.  In the moat by the caslte live some big carps.

The garden is open to the public each day from 10-20  from 1 April till 15 October  People can bring their picnic-basket.
