A dominant central axis
The large Baroque path axis, surrounded by chestnut trees, structured the garden in the past as it does now. The complex was once twice as large as it is now, but the lower part was separated by the railroad line in the 19th century. On the other side of the tracks, it is now forested, but the continuation of the garden axis can still be recognized. Originally, the street extended as far as the town of Graben and was part of an extensive system of avenues created under Prince-Bishop Schönborn that stretched throughout his lands on the right side of the Rhine.
