PRINCES, PARKLAND and POLITICS: The legacy of Muskauer Park and its modern revalorization

Today the Muskauer Park, or Park Mużakowski as it is also known, straddles the border between Germany and Poland but was part of a large estate in Saxony when Prince Pückler created it in the early nineteenth century. His vision of transforming the local landscape into a place of great beauty as well as industry, agriculture and commerce was respected by subsequent owners, who continued its development largely within the original blueprint. Following division after the Second World War many areas became neglected and eventually overgrown. Recent political changes, however, have led to increasingly close co-operation between specialists and other workers in each part of the park to give the whole a new life that recognises and revives its historical values.
