The landscape park was commissioned in 1789 by Freiherr Christian Truchsess von Wetzhausen. Somewhat hidden in the forest, a circular path leads through the park, which is equipped with monuments and small buildings. The Minnesängerplatz, the artificial ruin and the monuments to Ulrich von Hutten, Götz von Berlichingen and Franz von Sickingen represent the builder's glorifying attitude to the German past. At the beginning of the 19th century, the baron gathered around him a group of writers, including Friedrich Rückert and Jean Paul, with the “Bettenburger Tafelrunde”, which is why the term “Franconian Weimar” is also used in this context.
