The reconstructed espalier fruit orchard in the Klausdorf estate park is home to old and noble tree and shrub fruit varieties in four beds, each around 70 meters long. These contain berry, shrub and pome fruit as well as wall trellis fruit varieties. The wall trellis contains wines for consumption, such as Müller-Thurgau, Sylvaner and Bacchus (Frühe Scheurebe), a cross between Silvaner x Riesling and Müller-Thurgau. The garden was planted with the support of the municipality of Klausdorf. The fruit varieties were selected by Dr. Karl-Alfred Lein (1941-2018). The trained farmer studied biology and plant breeding, lived in the old walls of a knight's castle for several years in his youth and was later the master of two fruit-growing experimental estates.

After his professional life, he found a new home in the cultural and natural landscape of the Western Pomeranian Bodden coast. After reunification, he settled in Hohendorf and trained as an estate village and park guide. Dr. Lein began to tackle the project of a trellis orchard, following the historical example - in the 19th century, trellis fruit walls were widespread in the economic home gardens of the Vorpommern estates. After his health no longer allowed him to continue with the garden, it was taken over in 2015 with the fruit-growing knowledge and commitment of some members of the community, with Heidi Griebenow from Klausdorf as the contact person for the organizational side. This made it possible to preserve the espalier orchard.

Garden historian Dr. Angela Pfennig, Sebastian Weiland, NABU Greifswald regional group, and Christian Golde, former member of the Klausdorf Trellis Orchard Friends' Association, will give a guided tour of the trellis orchard and the estate park.
