I would skip this place unless the water comes back. I assume it’s dried out because of the season. But there’s also a giant gate buildup around the entire pond area also adding to the lack of ambience.

Breath taking place with amazing view on so unusually shaped bridge. Even in the winter this place looks awesome, but in the spring when all rhododendrons are in blooms , it could be even more marvelous. Sad that it is forbidden walk across the bridge.

This had been on my list to photograph for about 6 years. Wow it was amazing. Easy to find, ample car parking nearby and easy signs to follow. Worth the trip

Must be visited during May, when all the rhododendrons and azaleas are in blossom. The smell of the yellow azaleas is beatiful. It is a pitty that during the weekends the park is quite crowded and it is not possible to enjoy all the beaty...More

If you are in the area, you should definitely visit the park and its famous bridge, "Rakotzbrücke". We've been there in March, so we can only imagine how fantastic it must look when everything is in bloom, but it was still very idyllic and worth...More
