The park is not spectacular, but it gives the opportunity of a nice break. Within 3 minutes you are from the city into the park. There are also all kind of nice restaurants along the park.

A nice, quiet spot in the middle of Erlangen (not that Erlangen is particularly noisy). Grass, trees and flowers plus some old not-very-good sculpture. Nice for arestfulbreak.

As Schlossgartens go, this one is on the small side and not very interesting. It is basically a meadow with paths and trees. There is one ugly statue in front of the Orangerie. Perhaps it is more appealing in a season other than winter.
