Photographer's Note

The imposing moated castle Dyck is regarded as one of the most important cultural monuments on the Lower Rhine and can look back upon nearly 1000 years of history. Built on four islands in the 17th century, the castle complex lies at the heart of the spacious park. This park was created at the instigation of Prince Joseph zu Salm-Reifferscheidt-Dyck by the Scottish landscape gardener Thomas Blaikie in the style of the English landscape garden in the 19th century. As Centre for Garden Art and Landscape Design, Schloss Dyck today has much to offer to families and visitors interested in culture as well as garden lovers and experts. Apart from the historic park and gardens, the entire grounds of 70 ha showcase a wealth of new gardens reaching from modern landscape architecture over themed gardens and examples of home gardens up to an adventure play area.
