Part of the Schlosspark is neatly arranged with freshly trimmed trees and bushes but there is also a wide part with wild flowers and trees where you can get lost from every day hectic business schedules and modern life. Just be close to the nature and peace.

When you get to the end of the park, you can cross the street and you are on the beach ! I’m not joking – real beach of the Rhine river. There is sand, waves and sun – all you need for fun 🙂
