Beautiful park - fomer summer residence of the Grand Duke
Aug 2020
This park is situated in a narrow valley. It used to be the summer residence of the Grand Dukes of Hesse-Darmstadt in Bensheim-Auerbach on the Bergstrasse. It was built in 1794 and had several developments. It is a beautiful place for a nice walk, combining the well kept park with the surrounding vineyards. A great place to go with friends & family.

Lovely place for a walk and a coffee / ice cream
Aug 2019 • Family
Beautiful open space and very nicely and lovingly maintained. Clean and tidy, very good paths for walking or gentle cycling, beautiful buildings and a tree-lined approach to the main space where there is a restaurant / Café with a nice view up towards the little pagoda monument. All very green and lush, beautiful woodland trees and a pretty fountain and a "Naturdenkmal" (biggest tree of it's kind in Germany) within easy reach up a green slope or along well-maintained paths. There's nothing much else there! Lovely for a visit, a coffee or meal and a walk. Parking is down below in the valley but not a long walk away, however, if you struggle walking, this may be a challenge (could call the restaurant from the Barrier restricting traffic and ask for special permission? There's no parking up at the restaurant, but a drop-off might be possible). Dogs allowed in open space. Nice Sunday outing with my parents, will come again. Thanks.

December's not the month when this park is at its busiest - but we were looking for a place to unwind and to talk to each other while walking around in nice scenery... it's very peaceful, the buidings and trails reminded us of ancient poetry.

Quiet peaceful valley
Sep 2018 • Solo
I fully understand why Dukes of Hesse chose this beautiful valley for their summer residence. It is so peaceful and makes you relax immediately. There are a few lovely picturesque buildings in the center and plenty of comfortable trails in the park around. They offer amazing views to the valley as well as several little attraction like Five tables, Apple Tree Alley, Altar Hill, Goethe's Spring and many others.
I spent there about 4 hours walking and left relaxed and full of energy. I truly recommend.
The park has its own parking, but it is very small and always full so it might be less stressful to park in the town and walk.

Impressive Park, Exhibitions and Walks
Dec 2017 • Family
With great view to the Palatina Area you can walk around the park . Easy to reach from the city of Bensheim, you can learn more about the management of the castles in the reason and enjoy a well maintained park . A nice restaurant invites you to enjoy the ambience and the silence of majestic power .
Smaller exhibitions and concerts around the year , keep the place busy .
All food pathes , are easy to walk with strollers or even wheel chairs. .
A place which can take your attention during any season of the year, but especially in autumn and spring time

Great for a walk

The park is really nice for extended walks in the hills, the forest, along little lakes and the greens. A nice place for a visit and frequented by tourists and locals alike.

Really nice park
Feb 2017 • Family
It's great park to visit. Unfortunately we went there during winter season and all cafes were closed, but can imagine how does this place look like during summer season. Nice to spend weekend over there.

Very nice for walking, peaceful scenary

Can be combined with a visit to Auerbacher castle (free entry). The Furstenlager is a short distance after the castle road. A romantic cafe and restaurant in the park. Limited parking places.

Fantastic walk and glimpse of history

Beautiful scenery, pleasant stroll along the paths. An interesting look at the summer residence of the Hessian royalty and their court. There is a lovely restaurant on site to satisfy your thirst and appetite after your walk.

Romantic location, close to the central places
Feb 2016 • Couples
This is a very nice place for having a walk on a Sunday with a coffee break and delicious cake.
The garden is so lovely and walking up the hills to enjoy the view is worth every step.
A place to relax and enjoy!
