  • A very well maintained and at the same time original Park, which is marked by diversity. Not to mention the numerous and varied events that change throughout the year. And the coffee shops are worth a visit.

  • Der Garten selber ist ganz nett, die Gastronomie, eher verheerend. Die Dame bei den Weiher, hat uns die Villa empfohlen zum Essen, was eine Riesen Entschaueschung war, da es ausser Waffeln und 2 Suppen nichts anderes im Angebot gab. Nur eine der beiden Suppen waren noch im Angebot, welche gut war. Der Service aber, ist sehr unsicher. Ausserdem ist es Self Service. Wir waren verärgert, weil wir der Dame gesagt, hatten, das wir ein "anständiges Essen" möchten. Der Preis da war aber OK. Der Cappuccino wurde in einen kleinen Wasser Glas, lauwarm serviert. Also, nicht zu empfehlen. Das Cafe Haus Siessmayer ist unverschämt überteuert.! 20Euro für Schnitzel ist eine Bodenlose Frechheit. Kleiner Tip, packt euch einen Korb und geniesst es in der schönen grossen Liegewiese. Ansonst, für 7Euro Eintritt, und der Hauseigenen Tiefgarage, die max. 4Euro ist der Palmengarten einen Besuch wert.
  • Great park/ botanical garden, even during the winter season it is nice to visit the greenhouses. They show a huge variety of beautiful tropical and desert plants/ trees. Can recommend the place for taking some nice pictures. For students it's only €3, normal price is €7.
  • Good beer, decent food, a bit pricey, but very relaxed and quiet area.
  • My first visit and I am charmed. Affordable entry fees and if you live nearby its definitely worth buying the yearly subscription. I am not in a position to judge the quality of the flora on display but its an awesome place to spend time in summer, taking a stroll or reading a book. Peaceful and quiet.
  • Super nice play in the summer you can even go with boats on the little lake Perfect for little children
