The waterfalls start 520 meter up and you need to walk at least 2,3 km downwards to follow the flow of the water and the altitude is about 200 meters. We parked at a free street parking at the “end” of the park and walked...More

If you are in Kassel on a Wednesday or Sunday, you HAVE to see Wasserspiele. It's a great experience, even though they are renovating.

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.
