We love walking around the Japanese garden. The trees are beautifully manicured. Each time I go the garden has improved. There is food and many events there to enjoy. The cherry blossom event there is so fun

A weekend wandering in Kaiserslautern will give you good memories - among them this garden. More fun for people with botanical background or thrilled by "nature"

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.

It was pretty, but it seemed kind of small. I am hoping that was because I missed some pathway to the rest of it, but I don’t think I did. It would be a “must see” if it didn’t cost €5.50 to get in.

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

Been here a few times and the last time we went all the big beautiful koi had gone From the big lake . Bit disappointing and no explanation . Gardens are still wonderful though and a good place for a relaxing stroll.

It is a wonderful place to escape to. Bring your camera and experience the best photo angles. If you speak English only, organize a group of 10 or so to go on a walk through tour. They will gladly accommodate you. The tour guide is...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.
