With pictures, plans and rare historical garden tools, the exhibition tells about the horticultural and agricultural use.

For centuries, the Königstein has been inhabited by people. They shaped the plateau and the surroundings of the impressive table mountain according to their needs.
In 1589, the development of the medieval castle into a fortress began. The inhabitants, who lived here largely self-sufficiently for centuries, were mainly interested in the self-sufficiency of food, the defense of the militarily important location and the decoration of this significant place.

With pictures, plans and rare historical gardening tools, the exhibition vividly and entertainingly tells of the horticultural and agricultural use of the open spaces, of the ornamental and pleasure gardens of the commanders, but also of the greening carried out under military aspects. It becomes especially exciting when it comes to the favorite places of various fortress inhabitants on the plateau. You can also discover these yourself during your outdoor tour!

Content-rich media stations and a variety of hands-on activities for children offer opportunities for in-depth study and variety for visitors of all ages.
