Entrenchment Gardens

The circular structure in the Entrenchment Gardens, built in Rococo style in 1751,  is especially eye-catching.  The inscription on the frieze reads:  "After the fire, Henry XI. Reuß as Curator caused this summer house to be built for pleasure in 1751."   

The visitor has an impressive view of downtown Greiz from the Entrenchment Gardens, and from other gardens nearby. 

Facing the south wing of the Upper Palace, the attentive observer can recognize an attraction -- three gargoyles in dragon form and reconstructed according to historical models in 1994.
