A nice enough garden with a cafe with reasonable prices. Good views. In General we found Bamberg to be very disappointing. No parking, nothing but tourist priced food, etc. Go to Coburg or Bayreuth instead.

If you've visited the cathedral and are ready for a sit-down, then this is a perfect spot. The garden is beautifully kept and has plenty of places to relax in the shade. Good views of the town too.

Had our lunch sat on the many benches in the garden enjoying the view of bamburg. Rose's very nice although not all in bloom being the end of September.

The rose garden is a nice stop. The views are good as well. This is a good quick stop when visiting the Dom Platz.

It is a large garden filled with various colors of roses. Even though we were there during a heat wave the garden was still very pleasant to walk through. Also, don't miss the view of the roof tops of the old town.

Visiting the gardens in mid-summer during Europe’s prolonged dry periods as perhaps not the best time to view them, but they were well maintained and in reasonable condition. The geometric shapes were well designed and added to the impressive display. The setting was very peaceful...More

At first I would like to say that we were walking in Bamberg, town looks not so huge and easy to achieve. The most part of roses were died because of sunny weather, but from that place you can look over the town. Here are...More

We were passing through the area and decided to stop. Worth it! Nice small garden but not filled with tourists which is always nice. Good views from the garden.
