Fun Family Park

Great place to explore with little ones. Bring some bread to feed the ducks, and enjoy the beautiful gardens. Note: The bathrooms do not have changing tables, so plan accordingly.

What to expect from a place with a such prominent name? Nothing. Small garden with a lake. Some birds make it nicer. But in general nithing to wtite home about

Much larger than anticipated. More of a park than a garden per se. Gardens inside the park seemed a little neglected. Park has water features, cafes, restaurant and minigolf. A little train and gondola make going from one end to the other fun. Quiet reprieve from the city.

Though this is not the biggest park ever, it is indeed a nice place to relax. It has an elevated "Bummelbahn," which is sort of a tram going through it. There's a stage for events and an overpriced restaurant. The pond invites you and your family to take a stroll around it. The area is very green and neatly maintained,... More

If it wouldn't be for the fact that I have fond memories of this park dating back to my childhood in the 1960s I definitely would rate this attraction lower. It is a known fact that the city of Saarbrucken is practically bankrupt (just as the whole state of Saarland is) but that the administration decides to neglect this attraction... More

This park is well past its prime. The squalid massive bunker at the wholly renovated entrance could have been hidden by some imaginative gardening. The open-air theater looks derelict, the pompous concrete structure meant to shelter an orchestra is an eyesore, the pond has this squalid water organ right in the middle plus some shabby looking details that deprive it...

lovely park for a stroll. A long, narrow lake--restaurants at the far end. (There is a mini-railway around, too.) In the winter, tummy-sliding on the ide for children.

You can walk along the lake, pathways, into old tombstones. Ideal for biking. There are a few restuarants, although I didn't eat there prices seem to be ok. Also at the north part, there is kiosk you can buy freshly baked pretzel.
