Bergpark, Kassel

4.8
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.

  • You can park very well in the car park Wilhelmshöhe, near the visitors centre. From there, a nice walk through the Fontainenteich, Schloss Wilhelmshöhe, Löwenburg Castle, Heather Sanial waterfall, the Neptune Grotto, the Hercules, the Devil's bridge and the aqueduct is recommended. On the way you can dine beside the Neptune Grotto in the Kaskadenwirtschft. The scenery is gorgeous and varied. It must be due to the slope quite well on foot.

  • This place is awesome. We were there in early March and the stairs were covered in ice and snow. Better to wait for warmer weather. I would definitely go here for sure. Beautiful!!  more »

  • This is a great park! Baroque buildings, ponds and fountains in a beautiful scenery. The artificial waterfalls are unique, especially 200 years ago such technology was rarely seen. Today everything looks totally natural. The look on the city by night is a must...
  • Beautiful place. Take the small hidden paths. It's going to be worth your time.
  • Great views over the city. Beautiful architecture. Park, woodland, castle and gallery all worth a visit.
  • A beautiful park where you can discoverany different castles, statues and fountains. You can walk here for hours. Don't forget your bottle of water. :D
  • Really beautiful park! Take into account that you need at least 3 hours!
