The "Senkgarten" (sunken garden) on the Wartburg-castle

This area, at the foot of the south tower of the Wartburg-castle, was probably used as orchard and storage yard. This little situation with the steep slope on the north side provided an ideal opportunity, a small garden, as it was usual in the time of courtly love , with lawn benches, beds with a simple wooden frame and a water tank in the middle. Assisting were pictures and engravings from the 14th century. The beds in the middle were ordered after diseases as in a pharmacist garden.
