The Commander’s Garden today - a reconstruction around 1900
Family photos of the fortress commander Theobald Freiherr von Oer (commander of the Königstein fortress 1898 - 1904) from around 1900 show the area as a private retreat for his family.
The garden consisted of several islands of flowers and shrubs surrounded by a lawn. In addition to a small arbour, there was even a skittles game, a swing and a high bar for the children.
Based on these photos, the commandant's garden was reconstructed in its condition around 1900.
