Probsteigarten Hirzenach

Rheinstraße 65, 56154 Boppard-Hirzenach

Propsteig garden Hirzenach

The baroque Propsteigarten is one of the few structures from the 18th century that have been preserved in Rhineland-Palatinate on the left bank of the Rhine. Towards the provost house, the garden finds its limit in the stepped area on which the church and the provost building stand. At the end of the main path in the rear part is the stately fountain room with a large arched opening. Two staircases running in opposite directions lead to the viewing terrace. Another staircase then leads to the level of the first floor of the provost's office.

Propsteig garden Hirzenach

The baroque Propsteigarten is one of the few 18th century systems that have been preserved in Rhineland-Palatinate on the left bank of the Rhine. Towards the provost, the garden finds its limit in the level of the terrain on which the church and the prop building stand. At the end of the main path in the rear part is the stately fountain with a large round arch opening. Two opposing staircases lead to the viewing terrace.

Another staircase leads to the level of the ground floor of the provosty. Since the association was founded in 2000, it has been possible to give the former Propsteigart back its old beauty. The garden still has its original bed surround. The individual fields are leased to local gardeners, fruit trees have been planted on others. A crossroads in axes and boxwood crossways (parts from the 17th century) find their center in a rippling decorative fountain. The garden is framed by the ensemble of Romanesque church buildings (1109) with its early Gothic choir, the Villa Brosius (around 1050) and the baroque prop building (1716). William Turner, English painter, already gave his impression of Rhine romanticism around Hirzenach in one of his paintings (1817). Vines are planted on the two terraces and a model vineyard on the upper level with over 10 different grape varieties.

A pavilion invites you to linger.
