Reopening of the Princess Grace of Monaco Rose Garden

6/17/2014  Leisure

After eight months of work, the new Princess Grace Rose Garden was inaugurated on Saturday 14 June 2014 in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, H. R. H. Princess Caroline of Hanover and H.S.H. Princess Charlene.



The Rose Garden first opened on 18 June 1984.  Prince Rainier III wanted to create a place in memory of his wife Princess Grace.

More than 30 years later, the new Rose Garden that has just opened is much larger, with a surface area of 53,819 sq. ft..  It retains the charm of the previous garden and has 8,000 rose bushes in 300 different varieties.

Visitors can discover roses such as the rose of the Grimaldi Royal Family and roses named after Princes and Princesses and celebrities.  Modern equipment has been installed in the rose garden, including an interactive terminal and QR codes on each rose variety.

The Rose Garden will be maintained in an eco-friendly way, which could result in the garden being awarded the "Ecological Garden" label.

It is open 24 hours a day.
