Bergpark, Kassel

(4.8/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Park is huge, beautiful, very well care. To lose yourself in nature, it is very quiet, with much to explore and discover. You can enjoy the trees, waterfalls and the Castle.

  • Unfortunately only briefly, we visited the Mountain Park. What we have seen however really liked us. Beautiful old trees are everywhere, there are many ways to sit on benches and you will discover something new around every bend. There was snow during our stay, what the population equal to sledding and ice skating took advantage. A volksnahes recreation area!
