“The roses weren't out!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We visited in May and although the view is great up here, the roses weren't out. The coffee shop is nice and its a good place for photos. I liked it also because there's no charge to get in.

“Cake & Ice cream in an 18th century garden pavilion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

When visiting Bamberg, Germany be sure to visit the rose garden located in the inner courtyard of the New Residenz (Palace). The garden was designed in 1733 and was completed with a garden pavilion in 1757. Even if you are not there in summer for the magnificent roses it is still worth a visit for the cake & ice cream (be sure to order the 3 tiered dessert, spectacular).
Bamberg is the most beautiful historic city a must see.

“Beautiful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

A must see...if only to get a cool drink and watch the tourist wander through the Rose Garden (as we did). This place is so peaceful and classy.

“Visit in season”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The roses are likely beautiful in June, but in April they were not even buds. The garden is exclusively boxwoods and roses, so in the winter it is just boxwoods. The view of Bamberg from the gardens is about as good a scene as the industrialized city can offer.

“Nice break on the way down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We stopped at the Rose garden on our way down from Saint Michael's Church to the Rathaus i There were still some flowers to look at and it was a nice place to rest and relax before visiting the New Residenz and the Dom ! The place is quiet and well maintained . It also offers a nice view of Bamberg
