The Pomeranzen Garden in Leonberg has been established in 1609 by the Renaissance-builder Heinrich Schickhardt for the duchess Sybilla von Wuerttemberg. As the only preserved garden from Germany’s late Renaissance this rare terrace composition has inspired visitors for centuries.

It’s not a big garden but the view and where it is situated makes it perfect…she must have loved puttering around in it as you could not hear a sound except for the water.  The view overlooked the hills.

She was born in 1564, married at 16 and had 15 children and ended up living separate lives with her husband.  Because of this she developed into a person very well respected in botany and chemistry.  This garden is really a collection of the plants she used to treat the poor people.
