The garden is a waste of time if you have children. Most of the garden you can only get around using stairs. The only ramp for children is by the entrance. We spent about 5 mins and had to leave. Waste of time and money.

The Garden comes in two sections, the upper and lower. A steep path connects them but now has a wheelchair accessible walk to assist in going form one level to the next. The lower level is wonderful for picnics, wandering on shaded paths, and enjoying...More

Nice walk with a few koy ponds, small waterfalls and rock gardens. It was nice but for $5 per person it was a little much. You can walk it all in about 10 minutes.

They charge €5.50 to get in which is rather steep given how small the gardens are. However, I saw four people maintaining the gardens which I guess warrants the expensive entrance. The gardens are nice but small. I spent around 20 minutes there and I...More

The garden is pretty small and there is not much to see there. It's no different than any other Japanese garden elsewhere, but it's a nice place to spend couple of hours of your Sunday afternoon. They also have a nice small cafe where you...More

Lovely place. Small, but beautiful. It has a small coffee place inside, that I think it could be improved!

I would suggest you walk inside, since it is really nice. But certainly not worth the 5.50€ they are asking! For that price you can go to Schloss Schwetzingen and lose yourself in the most beautiful garden I've found so far. But for 2€ I...More

It's a place of peace! Typical Japanese style garden. It looks so clean and organized. You can feed the fish, relax in the stone yard and get a tan with a beer on one of the many possibilities to sit and calm down. The entry...More

Having traveled to a number of Japanese gardens, I found this one disappointing. It has a coy pond and some Japanese plants in a like decor, but it only took me 15-20 minutes to walk through the entire garden. It might be okay is all...More

A pleasant surprise! We had spent the year before in Japan and this garden truly felt like we were back in Kyoto. Lots of varied gardens and places to relax. Super for weary tourists to take a break. Someone really did this up right!
