Bergpark, Kassel

#1 of 57 in Things to do in Kassel
Park · Nature / Park
Described by art historian Georg Dehio as "possibly the most grandiose combination of landscape and architecture that the Baroque dared anywhere," Kassel's Bergpark is clearly worth a look. The grounds, designed at the beginning of the 18th century, make up the largest mountain park in Europe. Across the grounds, you'll find the striking Wilhelmshöhe Palace, the Lion's Castle, a large greenhouse, and a 250 m (820 ft) waterfall. The most famous monument, however, is the great copper statue of Hercules standing high atop a pyramid. Take the staircase to the 28.5 m (93 ft) high visitor platform, which offers a view of the entire park and city. To plan Kassel vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • Wow. What a feeling was that when the water fall begins. It happens twice a week, In Sundays and Wednesdays. The best time to visit is during the water fall. The pictures are enough to describe the serenity of the place 😊
  • Be sure to visit on Wednesdays or Sundays. Only then the ingenious water system is activated for a few hours. In the 18th century there were no pumps to provide water to the features, and the old system is still in use as heritage.
