Sakura Avenue

NOVELTY IN 2022

From season 2022, you can experience a new Sakura Avenue in the Castle Park.

40 Sakura trees will form a beautiful avenue located in the northern part of the castle park.

The Japanese cherry trees are of the same variety as the avenue leading to Gavnø Castle but differ from the pink color by having beautiful flowers in delicate white shades.
