Bergpark, Kassel
(4.8/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • A really nice Castle and great Park. With views of the city, several lakes, waterfalls, etc.

  • The word Mountain Park already tells us that a way definitely goes up. It is worth to climb the stairs, compensated to, with a beautiful view over Kassel and surroundings. The paths through the Park are very well maintained. A variety of trees and shrubs. Trees with powerful tribes of different structures. A land of milk and honey for photographers. The rose beds very well maintained with countless varieties. Note that these hard-working helpers are cherished free of charge and maintained as if it were her own bed. Because I need to speak out but a big praise and thanks. The water on the way through the Park, is a constant companion. So beautiful! The animal world also very comfortable. Even a Kingfisher has built its nest near water. The Park is ideal to recharge power and oxygen. He is so extensive, so that there is sometimes a soul on the way. Historically, the Park has too much to offer. Started the development and creation of the park with its castles, as well as the water flow at the Hercules. The cascade terraces invite you to coffee and more. This green oasis is a gift to the people and should delight many with all its glory. Also the cleanliness of the Park is worth highlighting.
