Baroque cstle garden Schwerin Baroque cstle garden Schwerin

region Mecklenburg

Baroque gardens were decorated with castles and stately homes. The shapes were playful, the cascades higher, the fountains arranged close to one another. Water in every form became one of the main design instruments. Tree plantations attracted and blocked vision. Fields of view became “delayed vistas.” With its regular symmetrical structures nature was subject to human creative will.

A glass factory also opens 1705 in an almost primordial forest around the village of Ferdinandshof. Trenches are dug throughout the surrounding marshlands to make them arable. Eleven new villages are built.

Quarries on the island of Rügen have mined chalk used in the production of burnt lime since 1720.
