  • Going to this park don't forget to grab a delicacy for local inhabitants (although they are migratory birds-can and does not meet).

  • If literally translated, the yard garden or garden in the yard and a park with trees, ponds, lawns. That, despite winter, were green, although winter, you must admit there is warm. There were ducks and other waterfowl. I think it's so fed that they won't fly away. Especially nice-a successful combination of nature and modern architecture.

  • great old park steeped in History, nice place to stroll around on a fine weather day!
  • Beautiful inner city park, there's always a wide assortment of bids in the pond and in the park. Beautiful area for a run or a walk in the evening as it connects to the Rhein. Big playground area for children as well
  • Not a fan of Libeskind but his building is great. I love the bridge
  • Not the best of places for a rainy day, and not as great as some gardens I've visited, but nice enough any. Lake is nice.
  • Nice and quiet, good for bicycles.
