  • A short walk in the park...a really nice garden, unfortunately currently a little of a construction area. Still really nice, must be just perfect in the summer.  more »
  • i really enjoyed my date there. the beer was good and the grass was well cut to sit on. Very romantic and fancy atmosphere. Will be going again.  more »

  • Really nice park for city strollers to stop by. Plenty of long benches for people to rest. Of course, you should not miss the statue of Mozart.
  • A very fine park for having a late evening drink on the grass. On the downside it is fenced off wherever possible, even there is no access to a small pool. We saw no reason for such extensive fencing.
