The complex is divided into different areas, such as kitchen garden, orchard garden, rose garden, perennial garden, Japanese garden, a greenhouse and is a special place of rest and relaxation in the middle of the big city. Here you can take things easy and unwind, have a picnic in the garden or take a puse in the small garden cafe.

The castle garden is based on an initiative by some enthusiastic Malmö garden lovers. They came width the the idea to create an ecological garden within the city in 1994. In 1997, their idea became reality and they began to create a new garden at the grounds of the former municipal tree nursery at the foot of the fortress.
