In 1803/04 Prince Carl Friedrich Wilhelm of Leiningen commissioned Friedrich Ludwig von Sckell to design the
"Seegarten". The Prince wanted to be able to see the "Seegarten" from his window and to overlook the “Wiesental”.
The park offers different views of Amorbach depending on where you are standing.
It is open to the public and serves its visitors as a place of relaxation.
The monks started to use these grounds in the 15th century to plant fruit and vegetables and also started a fish farm. Other gardens designed by Sckell were the English Garden in Munich, the unique castle garden in Schwetzingen and Nymphenburg, the Schönbusch and Schönthal parks in Aschaffenburg.
The royal "Seegarten" is an exquisite place for cultural events, exhibitions of any kind, as well as concerts and various other outdoor events.
