Came here on a stop on a river cruise (like several other people it looks like!) Was expecting the gardens to be more like a manicured flower garden type, but really it was more like a lush rolling park with statues and buildings. The gondola ride through the leafy, tree covered little byways was very relaxing and pretty.

The prince, who planned the park tried to transform his whole country into one landsape park, buildings roads which tied the other gardens and castles together. I've been there at least a dozen times and I can't get enough

The Elbe river cruise mostly isn't as interesting as some of the others...except for places like this. HUGE landscaped park planned by a hyperactive 18th century prince who became so enamored with the Enlightenment and western Europe that he built this place and invited everybody who wanted to visit the place. The gondola tour is a don't-miss; if you get... More

We visited this site as part of our Viking river cruise on the Elbe River. We walked much of the site and then enjoyed a gondola ride to see areas not to be seen when walking. Breathtaking. The English-style gardens are gorgeous. It is clear that the staff takes special care with the upkeep/maintenance of this site. Seeing the various... More

I read a review of a British couple who didn't take the gondola as the view would be the same. Big mistake! If you take the gondola you see different area of the park and get some explanation and it will definitely increase the value of your visit! We also visited the palace which was nice to see too. The... More

Enjoyed our morning tour of the park and gardens. Highly recommend taking the gondola ride as well. Be sure to have a guide so you understand the history and Prince Franz's intentions in establishing the gardens for the public to share.

We loved the extensive gardens complete with peacocks.The gondola tour is the way to go here in good weather.You will glide thru leafy glades and get a bit of serenity the place is designed to inspire.

I probably expected too much from this visit as it has been hyped up somewhat. We live in South Yorkshire and having easy access to Chatsworth House in Derbyshire amongst many other beautiful sites. Because of the raving reports I expected similar but was hugely disappointed. On entering the park you pass a beautiful church which is picture postcard stuff.... More

I made a bike trip with my friends from Lutherstadt Wittenberg to Wörlitz in summer. I think Wörlitz is a very nice place to spend some time, there are interesting buildings as well as beautiful park.
