Very Nice

We visited the place during December so the garden was in its winter sleep, but a great view can be seen from the edge of the valley and forest nearby.

This garden was very beautiful. My wife and I walked down through the streets to this area. We spent over an hour in here looking down the walls at the river and checking out the plants and buildings. I recommend it.

We were rushed through here (although we did return) and unfortunately our guide failed to give us the full history of this space. It is lovely and the ambiance and outlooks second to none. We visited in winter months so there was that definite winter feel the gardens. Nonetheless there are great views / photo ops of the river Tauber... More

A great peaceful place with great scenic views and lots of photo ops. Also has the Jewish memorial of Jews who died in 1298. Went in winter but would love to see the garden in the Spring when it's in full bloom! Will definitely return.

I wish the weather had been better for the visit. Reduced visibility eliminated all the views. The gardens were nice but still disappointing.

Strolled to here to see the views over the valley and views of the town walls and towers from a different angle. Beautiful with all the Autumn colours. From here you can walk on various trails through the vineyards and re enter the town at various points. Well signposted with the history behind various points of interest a long the... More

It is a small quiet garden along the river Tauber. One can just relax here after hectic sightseeing or enjoy a picnic. There is a narrow road that leads to the river too.

This is just gorgeous! Very tranquil setting and you can feel yourself being immersed into this delightful garden. We bought some german bread rolls and ham and a few pieces of fruit and sat on a bench seat eating our lunch and just gazing around this amazing place. Highly recommend to take time out to walk into this garden in... More
