Nature / Park
From a cable car to a rotating restaurant, you'll get a taste of everything amid beautiful gardens at Westfalenpark. The Florianturm restaurant offers 360-degree views of the gardens and city. Ride the cable car for an overall impression, then stop by the rose garden to see 3,000 varieties of roses. Attractions change with the season, and you can sometimes enjoy concerts or listen to German tales. If you'd like to visit the playground with your children, bring a second set of clothes--everyone might get wet.
