Bergpark, Kassel

4.7
Nature / Park Must See
Described by art historian Georg Dehio as "possibly the most grandiose combination of landscape and architecture that the Baroque dared anywhere," Kassel's Bergpark is clearly worth a look. The grounds, designed at the beginning of the 18th century, make up the largest mountain park in Europe. Across the grounds, you'll find the striking Wilhelmshöhe Palace, the Lion's Castle, a large greenhouse, and a 250 m (820 ft) waterfall. The most famous monument, however, is the great copper statue of Hercules standing high atop a pyramid. Take the staircase to the 28.5 m (93 ft) high visitor platform, which offers a view of the entire park and city. To plan Kassel vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • So steep I had not imagined the stairway. We went with the tram up to the end of the line and walk up. I'm pleasantly surprised we Green is Kassel.

  • A beautiful park to walk around and enjoy. Lots of historic and interesting things to see and learn about. It's not really a multi-use park so no BBQ or anything like that, but plenty of quiet places to enjoy.
  • I really recommend this place because of the beautyfull landscape , quite atmosphere , nice people , full history of place .
  • Very nice place to spend some time and take really cool pics :)
  • This is quite impressive but unfortunately the main cascade is under maintenance until Summer 2018. There is still plenty to see in the park and in summer time, the other fountains are running but are less impressive.
  • It's a beautiful museum. Entry fee per person is €6
