Great views, neat garden, better in spring

This is worth the visit just for the view. In spring the blooms and scents must be absolutely fantastic/

Will be beautiful with 4500 rose plants in the garden. Well maintained and well worth a stop even out of season.

Ad you'd expect there wasn't a single rose in April.. However the garden was still well kept and you could see the potential! Great views over the town from up here and a nice cafe within the garden. I summer it must be very beautiful.

Worth a visit - even if only for the views over the city. When we went, there were unfortunately no roses yet (just some tulips), but the gardens look very nice. We didn't try the cafe/restaurant. NOTE: If you want to use the toilet, you need to purchase a plastic token for 50c first.

We visited three times as we just loved the views over the rooftop. Simply lovely. Great place to soak up the atmosphere in an amazing town.

During the summer when all the different varieties of roses are in bloom, this is one of the most beautiful places in Bamberg. I spent a couple hours just strolling, sitting, relaxing, reading my walking tour guide and overlooking the city. Go. Enjoy!

After walking quite a long ways up a very large hill we got to the rose garden! It's beautiful even in November there were roses blooming! If it wasn't so cold we would have stayed longer. Beautiful city views from up there!

When I was there the roses were in full bloom and it was all lovely. I found the flooring of the portico as we entered quite interesting! It was made of pieces of wood placed very close together. Rather than having stone or bricks…one of the residents of the Residenz used this wood method to cut down on the noise... More

What a wonderful little spot to relax and enjoy the views of the town! Take a book to read or just sit down and enjoy the beauty of the garden.
