Overview

Schönhof can look back on a long and glorious history: originally a castle surrounded by a moat, it was later occupied by medieval knights and finally turned into a baroque estate. The main house, barracks and annex were rebuilt in 1819 after a fire, and had various classical elements added to them. At the end of the 19th Century, ownership was handed over to the city authorities and the property was reduced in size in order to make way for more and more roads. The landscape garden also fell victim to urban redevelopment, and its classical chapel was moved to Grüneburg Park.
