“Not a spectacular gardens, but with a spectacular view”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

It's the old city gardens of the palace (I think!). In the US, we would more call it a city park. It's not gardens as we would think of them, although there is a small garden in it. It's pretty and clean and well worth visiting. What makes it unique is the location. It's on the west end of the "pork chop" shape which is Rothenburg. It's long and narrow, situated above the city walls which surround it on 3 sides. From here, you get nice views out over the countryside and back over the city to the north and south. A nice, peaceful place.

“Nice to view, not spectacular”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

Compared to other parks, this is just average. What increases it's rating is the great views over Rothenburg and the countryside. Nice to visit, not necessarily a must do.

“Slow down, relax, enjoy”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

My wife and I had a nice block of free time to use in Rothenburg before our scheduled lunch with the rest of our Viking tour group. It was a hot July day and we were feeling a bit tired, so we decided to stroll to the far end of the main street to rest and reenergize in the Burrgarten. What a great idea that turned out to be! Entering the park we found ourselves free of crowds, surrounded by beauty, and really appreciating the peace and quiet. We did a little path-walking, a little picture taking, and a lot of just plain relaxing in the shade. An hour later we were refreshed and ready for lunch. Highly recommended.

“Tranquil”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

A beautiful park at the end of the main street of town. A lovely place to sit and relax or just wander around looking at the views, gardens and a monument to fallen Jews. We spent many afternoons here and enjoyed lovely sunsets.

“Perfect Spring day place”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

We arrived in Rothenburg on a gorgeous Spring day and ended up in the park at the end of town. Great views on three sides. A sad monument to Jews killed in the 13th century was outside the small chapel on the property.
