“Outdoor museum (if you are short on time, rent a bicycle)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012

Huge and beautiful park, now made even more interesting with the various artworks from documenta that are scattered throughout this baroque masterpiece. If you are short on time, rent a bicycle.

“A park fit for a prince with avant-garde installations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012

dOCUMENTA 13 makes you stroll in this lovely classical park with its great trees, fountains and reflecting pool. At each corner you discover mind provoking avant-garde installations as should be the case at dOCUMENTA. The glasshouse, a permanent feature, has a delightful small Thai-cuisine restaurant.

“Beautiful park, just the right thing for a long stroll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

We went there for the documenta, which made it even more interesting. The park is a wonderful baroque garden and invites for a walk, followed by a drink in one of the nice cafes.

“Lovely Park, Exciting Venue for Art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

It's easy to get involved in the many sites at Documenta and forget the Park. But don't! Beyond the many many art pieces, the Park itself is a little gem, so large for a city the size of Kassel. Save some energy for the climb back up though!
