Pleasant enough if you're passing that way, but not enough of interest to make a special trip there. In an interesting part of the city, though.

The park and gardens are really nice and not so overcrowded like the Herrengarten. Worth a long walk from home especially on a sunny day like this!

Relatively small compared to, say, the Herrngarten, but still elegant with the Schlösschen and pond. Safe in the day, but avoid at night, since there have been a couple of reports of muggings. If you found my review helpful I'd appreciate your vote.

This is an insider tip for families that want to stay a few moments or even hours in a small garden park in the south of the city center. We often stay a few hours in the garden and the kids can play.

Great for a lazy day in the park with a book. Easily accessible by tram or bus. Be sure to check out the duck pond. Great florist on the corner

This is a unique and quiet garden in the city.A chance to have a few peaceful moments perhaps a picnic. Well rernovated villa with rolling lawns and a pond.

A relatively small size park, with very nice play ground for children (Spielplatz) it has also some small fields for football, vollyball, and tabletennis.
