Kurpark Bad Hersfeld - Park of the Seasons



The spa park, which dates from 1906, underwent major rejuvenation work 100 years after its creation and has now been given a new look. The elongated stretch of park which had developed and matured down the years was linked sensitively to the changed sections and a curved “ribbon of gardens” was created as an effective central motif. It features a varied series of themed gardens grouped under the motto "Park of the Seasons". The gardens create constantly changing impressions with their blossoms and colours and with the richness of their vegetation in combination with individual design elements. Special touches are added by the concluding “Magic Spring”, which symbolises the Hersfeld springs, by the fountain fields laid out relevant to the central axis of the spa rooms, and above all by the cherry grove, which blossoms impressively in spring.

Remaining elements of the old park include the areas of grass planted with many different kinds of trees and shrubs, the fountain pond and the buildings at the side of the park, among them the municipal hall, the spa rooms and the spa thermal baths. Some of these structures have been partially redesigned. The spring pavilion was created at the entrance to the park in 2008. Its airy architectural design of wood and glass strikes a memorable opening chord.
