Breidingsgarten, less garden, more park.This garden is located on the Freudenthal long-distance hiking trail, on the banks of the Böhme.
It is very worthwhile to walk through the facility.The Röders entrepreneurial family began to create a garden around 1850.
They had a farm built, a meadow orchard and ornamental ponds.
A landscape park was created.
An Italian-style villa was built and an artificial ruin was built.
During the Second World War and the great storm in 1972, the park was hit hard.
In 2005 the company Carl Breiding & Sohn had to file for bankruptcy.
After that, the park became overgrown.
It is now a listed building.
Citizens from Soltau have founded an association.
They take care of the maintenance and restoration of the facility.
That also works wonderfully.
You can walk around here all year round and watch the seasons change.
First the spring bloomers then the rhododendrons, the water lilies.
There are around 40 different tree species here. The foliage changes color in autumn.
There used to be snow (!) In winter, which should have been nice too.More INFO:

Out and about in the Wisselhorst.
Some time ago we made firewood in the Wisselshorst.
I wanted to take a look at the positions.The Wisselshorst belongs to the Lower Saxony Forests.
We received fields from the forester.
Some trees were marked in these fields that we could cut down.
(Protective equipment and a saw license are mandatory).
We sawed down the marked trees, muttered them up and piled them up.
Then it was settled.
Now we could drive her home.
Saw small, chop, stack, let dry (2-3 years) and burn.
Making wood is exhausting but also satisfying.
Today I took a look at the old places.
You can't see much anymore.
I haven't found some jobs at all.
The forest is changing a lot.
The Wisselshorst is a commercial forest, rather tree fields, long, straight forest roads. Sometimes paved, sometimes muddy or overgrown.But there are also nice corners here, at least interesting ones.
