Oldenburger Schlossgarten

While the sturdy fortifications of the city previously did not permit the creation of state gardens in Oldenburg, at the beginning of the 19th century Duke Peter Friedrich Ludwig started creating grand palace gardens close to the historical walls and the ducal residence. Designed in keeping with the natural English style, the palace gardens, which extend over 16 hectares, have retained their picturesque atmosphere with natural planting and winding watercourses and paths. Garden and nature enthusiasts are especially in their element when the rhododendrons, which are typical for this region, are in bloom, and Oldenburg boasts the oldest rhododendrons of their kind in Germany.

Try this cozy winebar placed direct in the surrounding of the town hall and the St. Lamberti Church (Please take a look inside the church and be surprised). The wine bar is owned by Luigi Simeoni who is a really nice Italian wine maker. Try a glass of his own wines or one of the others selected by Luigi. Don’t expect a price like the wine of the house in an ordinary restaurant. Here you get high quality at a fair price. Please take a selection of ham, cheese and focaccia. Everything fresh and extremely tasty. You can’t stop again. She service is friendly and Luigi are very familiar with his guests.
