Wilhelmshöhe Mountain Park

Wilhelmshöhe Mountain Park is one of the main attractions of the city. The landscape garden located on the slopes of the Habichtswald Nature Reserve is one of the largest mountain parks in Europe and is a unique cultural monument. Two eras of European horticulture are harmoniously combined into a single unit here - the baroque grounds with the octagon towering above the cascades, and an extensive park in the style of the English landscape garden. Wilhelmshöhe Mountain Park is unique throughout the world. The outstanding sights and attractions include the Hercules monument, the water displays, Wilhelmshöhe Castle, Löwenburg Castle, the large greenhouse and the ball house.
