Monopteros in Schacky Park (2010)

Schacky Park is a city park adjoining Dießen am Ammersee to the south, and is 18 ha in size. The park was built in 1903, from 1904[1] or 1905 until 1913[2] by the royal chamberlain Ludwig Freiherr von Schacky auf Schönfeld and his wife Julia[2] laid out. The park and the villa on the grounds served as a summer residence for the couple.[2] He designed the park according to the English model with paved paths, leafy walkways and groups of trees. In addition to a monopteros, the grounds include a tea house, an apple trellis and several fountains as well as a number of statues.[3]

When Baron von Schacky died in 1913, the so-called peasant doctor Georg Heim bought the site and sold the park with Villa Diana to the Sisters of Mercy in 1933.[4] At that time the park was used as a cow pasture.[2] Currently, the western part is leased by the Dießen Riding Club and the eastern part by the municipality of Dießen
