Stumbling upon the gardens just as the sun set was more than I could have asked for. It was by far the perfect time to look out at the our scenic surroundings and snap photos.

If you want to get away from the madness of the city inner walls, come to the gardens for a great view of the valley below. Very short walking distance to the Marktplatz but nice. Not one of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen, but peaceful and a nice escape.

these gardens are worth the stroll! Even on a day of wretched visibility, the views of the countryside are beautiful, and the looks back at the towers and wall of the old town excellent. Within the garden itself there are several very interesting sites, ones you'd expect like memorials to early rulers, Frederick Barbarossa among them, but less expected ones... More

Yes, there is a view of the town walls, but unfortunately that's about it. This was the location of the town "castle", but that has been gone a very long time. There are some trees and grass, and the obligatory "holocaust" memorial that seems very out of place. Other than that it is a green space on the bluff overlooking... More

Went here in Autumn, very nice and the view is fantastic. If you want an escape from the tourists then grab something from the bakery and go to the Burg garden, only a short walk from the Markt platz

The garden didn't really impress me as there were not a lot of flowers. maybe because i went when it was almost autumn. the view of the town from there is nice but other than that, nothing really special to me.

The gardens themselves are nice, but not spectacular. It's a tranquil place to sit and relax. The views of the valley from the gardens are more impressive.

We visited this gardens twice. First time was on a walk in the evening and the night view with all the lights was very pretty. The second time was in the morning with the mist raising up out of the valley and again the views over the valley and along the town walls was well worth the return visit.

This is a beautiful garden on the top of the town with a wonderful foggy, almost esoteric view. It is a nice place to relax as it is quite peaceful and silent. It is ideal for those who dislike crowded places and modern city views, as you will only see a lot of amazing green countryside.

It's the old city gardens of the palace (I think!). In the US, we would more call it a city park. It's not gardens as we would think of them, although there is a small garden in it. It's pretty and clean and well worth visiting. What makes it unique is the location. It's on the west end of the... More
