Definitely worth the visit. Just stunning to look at and enjoy the surroundings. Have a picnic or enjoy something in the little coffee shop near by

We did not go into the building, in not even certain it is open to the public, but the gardens were fantastic! It was a great place for the kids to run off some energy. Many lovely statues, plants, and fountains.

I didn't get to tour the inside, it was too late but the outside gardens were open and fantastic! It's a must see even if you just get to see the expanding gardens.

Check it out on Google Maps. It's about 600m! Very close to many sites in Trier.
