In a small park, opposite the Helfenberg Castle, there are several of these curious-looking hanging beeches. In the park, e.g. there are also several false cypresses for a picnic or just inviting you to linger. A beautiful piece of earth. It is worth a detour to the Helfenberg castle ruins on the opposite side.

Not the hanging request should be the highlight, but the small, but fine ;-) romantically designed park in the English style at the country castle Helfenberg overall, with nicely placed old trees (Scheinzypressen and tulip tree), meadows, stream and little bridge 😃. Worth seeing.
Next door the classicistic country castle.
At the bottom or on the other side of the ground the ruin of the old castle Helfenberg.

A park connects to the south of the Helfenberg manor house. It was probably created as early as the beginning of the 17th century and changed several times. Its current form goes back to the early 19th century. Between 1806 and 1811 the landlord James Ogilvy, 7th Earl of Findlater, had it redesigned in the English style. During this time, valuable trees were planted, such as several false cypresses, a tulip tree and two hanging beech trees. The latter have been under protection since 1958; because of their special size and design they are designated as natural monument ND78. The park is characterized by the contrasting variety of large deciduous and coniferous trees and is crossed by the Elbe slope hiking trail.
