The center of the Great Parterre is the bell fountain. The 31,000 square meter large parterre or pleasure piece was originally the counterpart to the large central ballroom of the castle and today serves as a ballroom in the open air. Its eight rectangular beds are adorned at the corners by 32 white-painted sandstone sculptures. They come from the artists Christian Georg Vick, Antonio Laghi, Pieter van Empthusen and Arnold Rossfeld and represent the four, then known continents, deities of Greek mythology and allegories.
