Aarhof Castle is under historical preservation and protection together with the Castle Park. New buildings are concealed in the park around the Baroque palace to allow it to retain its dominance. Camouflaged by pearly facades, the organically shaped pavilions look to be floating above the ground. Arranged in a scattered pattern and shaped like magnolia leaves, all six residential units boast complete views.
