It's a small Garden inside a big park. It's really lovely! All of it. I enjoyed being there. It was a sunny day too! Anyway, unfortunately I found the Japanese Gardens a bit small. But definitely worth a visit.

For something so widely advertised, it seemed very underwhelming and isolated. A small shrine-esque gate leads to a stone/ pebble garden, but the café opposite was quite unwelcoming and it was a disappointing experience. At least it was free.

We were exploring the park and my host family showed me this. I love Japanese culture and this garden was beautiful and peaceful. Well kept and had everything from waterfall to pond. Serenity at it best.

Dr. Akira Sato anlitades att designa en trädgård och gjorde troligen ett gott arbete med dåvarande budget. I senare skede har den troligen överlämnats till staden Bonn's regi och förfallit. En japan skulle nog gråta inombords över hur trädgården har misshandlats av besökarna... Saxat från...More

I was passing by Bonn and decided to stop and see the garden. It's tiny and there's nothing special about it. If you're a tourist going around Europe and expecting to see really nice things, don't waste your time in this garden, it isn't worth.

Quietly place, nice, but I expected to find more space... It's nice, but too small in my opinion. Although a "miniature" garden, it has a small lake with beautiful, nice colored fish, different types of Japanese plants. It also has a resting place, and its...More

It is real Japanese garden (gift from Japan Government), small, simple and pleasant. There are miniature trees, lake with fishes, waterfall and so on. The garden is located in the Rheinaue Park. Good place to have a rest away from city noise.
