I would love to be here whenever the weather allows me. Check weather, bring blankets and some drinks or snack, call good friends and chill! So recommend sitting on one of the benches or lying down under the tree shade and have a break! :D

This is a nice path along the Main River with many trees providing shelter. You can have a nice view of the city along the river. There are many places to sit on the path, so you can relax and enjoy the moment.

We went in the summer, in the month of August. There was a fair/festival taking place, with rides and a lot of great street food and desserts. Everything was set up near the water, and it looked beautiful and very festive.
