Austad Manor park
The park at Austad Gård differs from the formal, geometric seas in that the park there is located on a hill, with a natural fall.
The main house is a classic early 19th century, while the extension to the courtyard is neo-baroque. Austad Gård was part of a large farm with agricultural buildings on the south side of the house and courtyard. The square south of the entrance is a so-called "House court" and it is surrounded by a straight, rectangular row of trees. Today, the fabulously impressive avenue has no logical connection with the house and the farm, but it draws a clear, natural curve along the elevation in the landscape that forms a natural basis for a pedestrian and driveway.
That the ideals behind this simple garden are the landscape garden's attempt to emphasize an organic and romantic / picturesque "naturalness", we see from how seamlessly it slides into Bikkjestykket. It is the topography of the place that here governs the park shape.
The park is open daily throughout the year.
