Bergpark, Kassel

(480+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
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.

  • Very good to simply to relax, to discover and to leave the city behind. Also the position on a slope, is interesting and is therefore suitable for jogging.

  • We were with our American friends in the Mountain Park to the fountains. Super. The Mountain Park is only worth to go for a walk. Rich variety

  • The Mountain Park is a real highlight – sometimes at 2nd glance... If you look at Hercules/water games, lion Castle, Castle and the parks in detail and dealt with the emergence, appreciate great trees and parks, the Mountain Park is a must-see. This is true in every season, there are always new impressions. But the water games (also lit!) are certainly highly recommended.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • One of the greatest place in Germany. Between real and surely. This place is the place from Grimm Brothers tales
  • Overwhelming experience, well maintained park in the heart of the city
