I was not expecting to find a Japanese Garden while visiting a friend in Kaiserslautern. It was a wonderful place to wander around for an hour or so - lots of flowers, plants, and trees, walking around water features, etc. Very well laid out, and a nice, relaxing spot to sit for a little while. Plenty of prime picture taking... More

I just recently visited this tourist attraction and it was very scenic and upkept. What i didn't like so much was that it took maybe 15 minutes to walk through the entire garden and it was full of trees, flowers, and plants. It was also somewhat crowded as well due to the nice weather.

Haves lived in Japan this garden is beautiful. Visited beginning of April and the cherry blossoms where still blooming. Great place to relax in the middle of a busy town relaxing and nice views of down town k-town. Worse the visit also perfect for photographers.

The Japanese Garden is a lovely place to come and relax and wander through the small park-like grounds. However, it's hard to think of this as a tourist attraction, per se, except for those wanting to sit among the plants and chill out. As a resident with an inexpensive annual pass, I like to come here and have a tea... More

The Japanese Garden in Kaiserslautern is a calm and beautiful place on the hill facing the downtown. You can wander around, sit and relax or just admire the outlook of and from the place. As the admission fee is peanuts, Japanischer Garten is definitely worth a visit.

Japanese Garden is a small garden built in Japanese style and has lots of artificial water falls and a small pond which has plenty of Koi fishes. Animal lovers will love the radiant fishes and ducks in the pond. The Koi fishes are very friendly and one can feed them the fish food which you can buy at ticket counter.... More

Having lived in Japan, it is nice to have a small Japanese haven to come to. This garden is very well done. We had Japanese friends visit and he spoke to one of the German gardeners who had actually studied gardening in Japan. The Kaiserslautern Japanese Garden is a calm place in the busyness of the city.

The gardens were more and less than I was expecting. Not sure why, but I expected the garden to be larger. The price was good and my favorite part was the pond and the fish.

We have been to many Japanese gardens as well as lived in Kaiserslautern several years. We had to be "visitors" before exploring this gem tucked away in the middle of the city. We will definitely be back for a return visit :-)
