Lovely garden with little niches to sit everywhere. Peaceful and tranquil. Ideal to sit and read, meditate, ponder life. I watched the squirrels play, listened to the wind and enjoyed the scents of the plants and trees.

A great place to take a book and sit among the trees and relax. It is hard to imagine that you are in the city. Reasonable price and fun for the kids to watch the fishes.

The garden is relatively small, and alongside a busy road. The higher parts of the garden offer a view over the not very lovely town of Kaiserslautern. The topiary of some of the trees looks very amateur. That notwithstanding this is a nice enough garden...More

The garden is a waste of time if you have children. Most of the garden you can only get around using stairs. The only ramp for children is by the entrance. We spent about 5 mins and had to leave. Waste of time and money.

The Garden comes in two sections, the upper and lower. A steep path connects them but now has a wheelchair accessible walk to assist in going form one level to the next. The lower level is wonderful for picnics, wandering on shaded paths, and enjoying...More

Nice walk with a few koy ponds, small waterfalls and rock gardens. It was nice but for $5 per person it was a little much. You can walk it all in about 10 minutes.
