Directly behind the dunes of the Baltic Sea beach is the 4.5 ha rhododendron park. The park was created in the years 1955-1961 by the Rostock garden architect Friedrich-Karl Evert on a former sand pit. It is unique in Mecklenburg and one of the largest in Germany.
Rhododendron originates from North America and Eurasia, it can reach a height of up to six meters. There are about 2500 plants in the park, including about 60 different rhododendron hybrids. When in May and June the more than 2000 perennials are in full bloom, the park shines in all colors and the air is filled with the fragrance of the plants. During this time, the Rhododendron Queen leads a tour of the park and park concerts are held weekly. Everyone is invited to the traditional Rhododendron Park Festival. We are looking forward to your visit!
The Rhododendron Park was declared a monument in December 1986. With the comprehensive renovation of the park from 2005 to 2007 Graal-Müritz got a new concert pavilion, which can now be used all year round due to a closable glass front plus the installed heating.
