  • The park is very worth seeing, especially these sculptures in the water and this big ball in front of it. Everything is very well maintained and at lunchtime there are many students and employees in the park.Everything is very quiet and peaceful, everyone sticks to the Regeln.So something you know from the parks in NRW where I come almost no more, compliment !!

  • Excellent kitchen. Good service. Have been now twice. Will come again!
  • The park is beautiful and cool and calm. The perfect escape from the town. Don’t get me wrong the town is beautiful too. It was lovely to sit in the shade of the trees and enjoy the view of the lake and mountains.
