Siegen Castle Park at the Upper Castle


Prologue

Siegen

The Upper Castle can be found at the top of the Siegberg, a small hill. This spot offers a variety of views of the city of Siegen and its historical core. The castle park stretches out around the 15th-century castle and features a large number of contemporary sculptures.

The municipal castle park is a popular place with the citizens of Siegen due to its tranquil location above the city, its expansive lawns, its numerous trees and shrubs and the colourful blossoming of its flowerbeds. The annual show of blossoms begins in spring with approximately 60,000 tulips. These are followed by geraniums, fuchsia, tuberous begonias and other well-known plants which are grown in the city's own nursery.
