  • Our hotel was in the immediate vicinity and so it was a must to visit the Park. The Park has not only liked, no, as were also surprised how big and the Park is beautiful. In the former stronghold of the coal we had not suspected this and expected.

  • With children or without, the Gruga is a great address at any time. In the spring, the great flowers or autumn a watchable place is the colorful leaves, the Park in every respect. Find rest and relaxation, as well as a variety of different plants. The children come on the adventure playgrounds at their expense.
