Getting to know Schönbusch Park
"Everything appears natural, so well is the artifice hidden": on this tour of Schönbusch Park, you will explore the highlights of its design and learn about its roots in the principles of English landscape gardening.
Schönbusch Park was one of the first public parks in 18th century Germany to adopt a new design aesthetic. To this day, its design elements reflect the contemporary longing for a lost paradise and peoples’ search for a truly humane and liberal society.
