Since 1670, Schönau Palace has been owned by the Rieder Barons von Paar zu Schönau, whose descendants still live in the Palace today. In 1867 the Oberhof gardener Carl Joseph Effner - he also designed the winter garden on the roof of the Munich Residence, the gardens of Lindenhof and Herrenchiemsee for the "fairy tale king" Ludwig II of Bavaria - designed the park in the style of a landscape garden. The park with its numerous exotic trees, some of which are rare, is unique. In addition to native trees such as elms, maples, beeches, acacias, lime trees, black pines and yews, exotic species such as the sugar maple, American oaks, Japanese larches, a tulip tree, magnolias, plane trees, thujas and marsh cypresses can be found. A giant copper beech is particularly impressive. In 1951, the castle park and the adjoining grounds to the south were placed under landscape and monument protection.
