Honestly to say I expected much more from this garden, at least regarding the size. The garden can be walked around in maybe 15 mins, but of course you also take some time to enjoy the nature and drink a cup of tea with a tasty cake offered in a tiny cafe. However, the place is quite and pieceful, you... More

This is a nice place to go for an hour or two. I have been to many Japanese Gardens so in my opinion this was not the best compared to some others I have seen but it is still a nice place to go. They have the largest coy fish I have every seen in the pond. Get some food... More

Relaxing and quite place to either put your thoughts in order or hang out with friends. Bring you camera, because the place is amazing, despite small. There is a lake with fishes which come very close to you. Lots of trees and benches where you can just sit and enjoy the nature. Strongly recommend to go there if you pass... More

The gardens are laid out in a beautiful style. Easily accessible for all, although some of the paths are quite steep. When we visited there was the opportunity to take part in Japanese calligraphy, sample Japanese snacks and buy fabrics. Good for an hour or so visit. However, the garden is not well signposted and the recommended car park is... More

Having just moved here from Japan, we were happy to spend an afternoon here and enjoy the serenity. They have done a good job of making you feel separate from the city but it is convenient to downtown. I though the admission price a bit steep but I know all that plant grooming can't come cheap! Wish the tea house... More

An oasis of peace and tranquility in the town center. Luckily all the Rhododendron were in bloom when I visited so it was beautiful. I imagine Spring and Autumn are the best times to visit. Nice walkway and lovely water features. Small enough that you can see it all in an hour or linger and enjoy the peace. Was hoping... More

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
