The translation of the name of this small but beautiful park means “people’s garden”. And that is what it is: a place where all people go: young and old, bikers, pedestrians, runners and relaxer.
It is located in the area of the Neustadt Süd, the famous Kölner Südstadt and the stadium of Fortuna Köln is also nearby. The park has the perfect size for one (or two) jogging rounds or a Sunday-afternoon walk: not too big and not too small.
What I like so much about this place is the beauty of it in all the seasons of the year. In summer I have a kölsch in the beer garden and take a paddling tour on the lake, in autumn I walk along the paths and am happy about the colors of the leaves and in winter I still like this place, as you can sometimes see the lake in the middle of the park frozen over. And: the beautiful Rosengarten in the Fort X is not far.
I’m sure you will like this place as much as I do!
