“Great gardens!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

The gardens are terrific. Very beautiful and pleasant to walk. Besides the 'regular ducks and swans (there are also Mandarin ducks), there are many raccoons in the park. Important to know that the park is also accessible for handicapped (at least a significant part of it). You drive to the park, drive pass the parkings, pass the hotel and then, on your left, you have 2-3 handicapped parking places on a packed gravel path, which is closed to cars by a chain. from there you can have a long stroll in the park, reach the castle, see the a beautiful lake and enjoy. With some help with the slopes, you can also enjoy the lake below the palace and maybe even climb a bit to higher grounds (although it will be difficult there).

“Every time we walk it, we find something new”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We love this park. It is a mountain park full of streams, waterfalls, bridges, etc. Every time we spend a Saturday or Sunday walking it, we discover something new. In the winter, we have snowy, quiet hikes. In the Spring, you can hear the water flowing and birds chirping. It is lovely all around. A treasure for a small town like Kassel.

“A special park”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

The park at Kassel Wilhelmshöhe is Europe's largest hill park and well worth a stop. It's not actually in Kassel but close to the ICE Station Wilhelmhöhe from where there is a regular tram towards the Schloss Wilhelmshöhe. Climbing and exploring the park (up to 550m!) is a lot of fun (and needs a plenty of time) with lots of follies, magnificent trees of enormous size, clever landscaping, lakes and spectacular views looking down the the grand axis past the Schloss leading towards Kassel. Try to catch the water runs which take about 20 minutes from the top to the large basin where the force drives a 60m fountain on Wednesdays and Sundays at about 14:30. On the way the water passes through many imaginative structures. This complex of tunnels and aqueducts (constructed in the 18th century!) is one reason why this park will probably become a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2013.

“Great exercise”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Well worth the climb. It gives an amazing perspective of the ingenuity or our ancestors to build such long lasting and intricate structures.
