You need to take a lot of stairs up to see the view. But it is worth it. The stairs are comfortable. Though there is a water way in between, i heard the water is in it on Sundays.

Didn't see, but no doubt spectacular. Shuttle bus runs to the statue ONLY on waterworks days, otherwise you have to walk.

It is kind of a long climb up the many stairs alongside the ''Wasserkuenste" (water arts), but you will be rewarded by a magnificent view of Kassel if you walk up to the end. By the way, it is quite a good cardio exercise if...More

A pleasant but quite extensive walk uphill took us from the #1 tramway stop to the picture shown here, with the Wilhelmshöhe park extending downwards. Even for handicapped (i.e., walking with a cane), well to manage. At the bottom, there is a nice café for...More

Designed some 3 centuries ago the Park and water arrangements are so unique that they were declared a UNESCO world cultural heritage a few years back. Cascades, aqueduct, waterfalls, fountains, just fantastic. The Wasserkuenste are...More

We had a nice stroll through the park with the family. Nice views, great forest and waterworks. We missed the actual fountains and waterfalls since this is only on sunday, monday and holidays around 15:00.

The best place to visit in Kassel. Once a month, the first Saturday of the month, they are illuminating the fountains

This is an amazing thing to see if you can arrange to be there for a day and time they have it scheduled to flow. During college art history classes, these types of garden waterworks are included, but I just kind of remember fountains...blah blah...More
