Terrassengarten Kloster Kamp

The terrace garden of the Cistercian monastery Kamp is on the southern slope of Kamper Berg. It was built between 1740 and 1750 based upon plans by monk and architect Bücken who, in turn, had used baroque Italian garden concepts.
The slope was broken down into four terraces by fruit trellises, yew pyramids and vines.
Arched stairs lead to the garden proper, which used to be very formally structured by beds.
Part of the beds were also used for growing herbs and vegetables.
Grand flower beds, potted plants, colourful boscages, a fish pond and a fountain upgraded the garden to turn it into a horticultural work of art, if you will.
The orangery was for exotic plants. After secularisation in 1802, the garden also vanished and was used to herd cattle.
The town of Kamp-Lintfort only had it reconstructed from 1986 to 1990, based upon a received baroque topographical map from the 18th century. The reconstruction by Klinkhammer Architekten & Stadtplaner is modelled upon the historical example but uses contemporary architectural design elements.
Here, visitors will be able to appreciate the baroque concept of order, symmetry and representation.
