After good experiences and encouragement from visitors the last years, horned Gotland sheep are grazing the meadows of Charlottenburg Palace gardens this season again. On Tuesday, 27 April 2021, about 40 animals arrived and took on the first meadow areas. The sheep will stay until November. Visitors are not allowed to enter the fenced in meadows or feed the animals.
The foundation sees the use of the animals as a "contribution to practical nature conservation", as it was called. The gardens had been grazed earlier in its history, but not in the post-war period, it was said last year. The garden was created from 1695 by Sophie Charlotte, the wife of Friedrich I.
