Rosengärtchen Schmitshausen

Schmitshausen

Description

The village has already been awarded the gold medal in the competition "Unser Dorf hat Zukunft" ("Our village has a future") by Count Lennart Bernadotte of the Mainau (island in Lake Constance) in 1966. The rose garden, which today includes more or less 800 rose trees, was planned in the style of a monastery garden by the Mainau's rose gardener Josef Raff. The „Fritz-Walter-Rose“ in the garden complex serves as a reminder of the honorary captain of the Soccer World Cup in 1954, which ended with the "Miracle of Bern" for the German team.
