The construction of the park came at a time when the garden architecture was characterized by a spirit of optimism and new trends. The park designs during this period mainly extended to the creation of public parks in large cities and to representative villa gardens. A palace park, in which the discussion of the new design theories of these years can be experienced so clearly, was one of the major exceptions from a garden artist's point of view. In 1911, Alexander Graf zu Faber-Castell bought the Schwanberg property and began to expand it. The castle park is created from 1919 to 1921. Möhl & Schnizlein, a renowned garden architecture firm, was commissioned to plan the palace park.

The Schlosspark Schwanberg charms visitors in every season. It is one of the few palace parks that was created at the beginning of the twentieth century. A walk through the eight-hectare park is an excursion into the history of garden art, because the stylistic devices and design conceptions of the twenties are atmospherically staged here.
Between 2009 and 2013, comprehensive renovation measures were carried out, securing the preservation of Schwanberg Palace Park as an important garden monument in the long term.
