  • A beautiful peaceful, relaxing green space gateway to the Old Town. Take a boat ride on the Kanal, enjoy coffee, pastries and people watching in a small cafe or simply stroll through the eye catching autumn gardens. Escape from the frenetic tourist rat race and chill out. I recommend you to it.
  • The cutest green park split down the middle by a lazy small river. All the grass and trees are beautifully manicured, with plenty of open space and line of sight to the distant horizon. There are boats and canoes available for rent. The tall trees provide ample shading during the warm summer days. Bring your favorite blanket and picnic basket here for a pleasurable say at the park. Heal your soul!
