This is a very nice garden but don't count on it taking much of your day. It's relatively small but it's a nice environment to enjoy a slower paced day and have lunch or drinks. Nice getaway within the city limits.

Having read the reviews saying it was small I was expecting a much smaller garden. When I got half way through it I thought I was at the end and I still was surprised by how large it is. Size wise it's no Kew Gardens, but I still really enjoyed my visit here. We made a slight detour to stop... More

It's a beautiful place but very small you can walk everything in like 10 minutes. So make sure to spend some time in the little cafe they have there and also to read a book.

On a beautiful sunny day this is the perfect park to be. Beautiful scenery. Beautiful flowers with a waterfall and large Koi fishes grace this majestic park! Kids are able to feed the koi fishes by buying pellets. walk around the park and forget your worries with the beauty that surrounds you.

A lovely little treasure in Kaiserslautern. Worth a visit. Take your time. Sit and rest. Enjoy some tea or snacks from the outdoor cafe. And practice the art of doing nothing. Includes koi pond, Japanese rock garden, and many tree varieties. Enjoy.

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
