The Schlosspark has always been open to everyone. It is valued by the many holiday-makers who quickly fall in love with the English landscaped garden with Schloss Evenburg at its heart. Located in southern East Frisia, Schloss Evenburg is an old moated castle that was converted in the 19th Century. Baron von Ehrentreuter had the castle built in Dutch style in the mid-17th Century.

It is now owned by the district of Leer. Unique in the region, the ensemble is a must for guests and locals, who can admire its moats, ponds, mighty trees and multiple bridges, and enjoy the nature, architecture, art and relaxation with all the senses. Trained guides enthusiastically show off both the inside and outside of this significant cultural monument: the large hall, the magnificent staircase, the decoration on the high ceilings and the impressive entrance.
