    The combination of high rock, giant flower basket sculpture and semicircular bench is a garden-artistic specialty, which according to the current state of knowledge in
    Europe has no peers. Several phenomena occurring in the gardens around 1800 are brought together. The staging of rocks, the flower basket fashion and classicism (the anti-keen griffin bench) are in
    combined in a probably unique way. A natural rock becomes a huge, sensitive and sentimental monument to Duchess Charlotte
    Amalie redesigned. Within the Gesamtkunstwerk of the Altensteiner
    In the landscape garden, the flower basket rock plays an important role. It is a multiple bearer of meaning and an important point of view within the
    System vision system. The game is an integral part of the first sensitive park design phase in the Altenstein outdoor park under Duke Georg 1.

    In 1800 a flower basket was carved out of a rock of the Altensteiner Riffgruppe in imitation of an old Roman sarcophagus.
    This 3m wide and 1m high flower basket was previously planted with flowers.
    A narrow staircase carved into the rock leads to a viewing platform on the summit of the flower basket rock.
    From there you had a view of the castle and the landscape.
    In a rock niche at the foot of the rock there was an arched sandstone bank, called a "griffin bank".
    On the back there was a marble bust of the Duchess Charlotte Amalie von Sachsen-Meiningen.
    The original flower basket from 1800 was demolished at the end of 1920 due to deterioration and safety reasons.
    The back stairs were in need of repair.
    The sandstone bank under the flower basket rock fell into disrepair due to the weather.
    The marble bust of Duchess Charlotte Amalie is completely preserved.
    The Friends of Altenstein-Glücksbrunn e. V. has set itself the task of restoring individual projects and supporting the Thuringian Palaces and Gardens Foundation in realizing the reconstruction of the former park architecture.
    The replica of the flower basket was started in 2013 and inaugurated in 2014 after completion. It consists of a sandstone shell with a zinc sheet tub which is provided with a water reservoir. The steps and the railing have also been restored.
