The park is really nice for extended walks in the hills, the forest, along little lakes and the greens. A nice place for a visit and frequented by tourists and locals alike.

It's great park to visit. Unfortunately we went there during winter season and all cafes were closed, but can imagine how does this place look like during summer season. Nice to spend weekend over there.

Can be combined with a visit to Auerbacher castle (free entry). The Furstenlager is a short distance after the castle road. A romantic cafe and restaurant in the park. Limited parking places.

Beautiful scenery, pleasant stroll along the paths. An interesting look at the summer residence of the Hessian royalty and their court. There is a lovely restaurant on site to satisfy your thirst and appetite after your walk.

This is a very nice place for having a walk on a Sunday with a coffee break and delicious cake. The garden is so lovely and walking up the hills to enjoy the view is worth every step. A place to relax and enjoy!
