For centuries the building yard was the manor for supplying the Eutin Castle and is now a cultural attraction in the city. In the middle of the building ensemble consisting of gatehouses, Vogthaus, opera barn and the former cowshed, where there was once an agricultural business, lawns framed by roses and hedges are being laid out under old trees. The roses here have names like Parasol, Diamant or Countess von Brühl and give the tranquil place a blooming setting. The oasis of calm was designed by the agricultural architecture office A24, together with the Schleswig-Holstein Rose Schools.
The two gatehouses as access to the courtyard are registered cultural monuments from 1837 and once served as a horse stable. Both half-timbered buildings with their thatched roofs were carefully renovated from the ground up for the 2016 State Garden Show so that they can accommodate the flower shows and the regional market as well as long-term event rooms.
The Vogthaus, also an old half-timbered building, is to be renovated later and become the permanent seat of the Eutin community foundations. In the future, kindergarten and elementary school children will learn and experience how people used to live, plant and harvest here.
In the opera barn - this also goes back to former farm buildings - is the headquarters of the Eutiner Festspiele gGmbH, which looks after the nearby floating stage.
The former cowshed, the location of the hall shows at the garden show, is to enrich the cultural location with a youth hostel from 2017.
