Hundreds of palm trees, agaves, laurel and orange trees adorn the Prussian gardens in summer. In the winter months, the trees are well-protected in the greenhouses or “orangeries” – greenhouses built by the Prussian kings for citrus plants to hibernate in the cold season. A tour of the Orangery´s impressive greenhouse and heating structure provides visitors with information about the plants and historic heating systems, partly still in operation today.
