Bergpark, Kassel

(4.8/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • It offers opportunities to be alone sometimes. A beautiful area of silence and contemplation.

  • of course it's nice summer, but now it has its charm here to walk. Sturdy footwear is necessary.

  • The Mountain Park is a European uniqueness as an overlay of a Baroque Park and Park in the style of the English landscape park. The axial baroque structure is still clearly visible, but the later added attractions make up the voltage. Since the recording as a UNESCO World Heritage people in the fountains in the summer half-year block often overlooking the only temporarily übersröhmten water games. The path from the car park at the Castle up to the Hercules should not be underestimated and too far for older and untrained walkers. Better run from top to bottom.
