Nice walk with a few koy ponds, small waterfalls and rock gardens. It was nice but for $5 per person it was a little much. You can walk it all in about 10 minutes.

They charge €5.50 to get in which is rather steep given how small the gardens are. However, I saw four people maintaining the gardens which I guess warrants the expensive entrance. The gardens are nice but small. I spent around 20 minutes there and I...More

The garden is pretty small and there is not much to see there. It's no different than any other Japanese garden elsewhere, but it's a nice place to spend couple of hours of your Sunday afternoon. They also have a nice small cafe where you...More

Lovely place. Small, but beautiful. It has a small coffee place inside, that I think it could be improved!

I would suggest you walk inside, since it is really nice. But certainly not worth the 5.50€ they are asking! For that price you can go to Schloss Schwetzingen and lose yourself in the most beautiful garden I've found so far. But for 2€ I...More

Having traveled to a number of Japanese gardens, I found this one disappointing. It has a coy pond and some Japanese plants in a like decor, but it only took me 15-20 minutes to walk through the entire garden. It might be okay is all...More

A pleasant surprise! We had spent the year before in Japan and this garden truly felt like we were back in Kyoto. Lots of varied gardens and places to relax. Super for weary tourists to take a break. Someone really did this up right!

This is a quiet spot of green in the city of Kaiserslautern. It has several places to read or sip at one of the few beverages offered at a small kiosk inside the garden. There are many levels that must be traversed which would be...More

I loved this place a lot - I have honestly never been to a Japanese garden before so I have nothing to compare it with, but I know I enjoyed every second. I loved the fishes!
