Prinz George Gardens are quite popular for wedding photos given that is has a variety of flowers and also fruits and vegetables throughout the year. It is a calm, wall protected garden which has a small palace on one side (housing a porcelain museum) and an unusual library in the other (housed in what was probably some building on the palace complex) in which one brings and takes book at will, without registration or even permanent staff. Not a huge choice of books and many of them related to the subjects taught at the University but still an unique attraction in Darmstadt

This is a part of Herrngarten park adjacent to the small palace of prince George, which now houses the porcelain museum. It originally combined the two plots, including one that belonged to general Pretlack (garden house nearby bears his name) and now is markedly different from the rest of the Park. with its more than obvious geometric layout. The prince himself made the layout of the garden with  the longitudinal and transverse axes of the paths, now very smooth, neat and covered with gravel, and marked the places where there should be fountains and gilded sundial. However, formally, this garden can be considered a botanical one - because in the garden there are beds with vegetables, which are uncommon in gardens and parks of usual, "general purpose".

A nice french garden, a part of Darmstadt's Herrngarten. The Museum is near and the Porcellain Museum is adjacent. It's a garden with flowers and vegetables. On one side there is Pretlack's Pavillion and open library, where people get and bring books from and to. In summer you get a book, sits on the stairs or a bench in the garden and just read.
