The Kurpark

…. and us in the middle of it

The 110 year old “green oasis” in the north of the city covers a total of 36 hectares
– 25.7 hectares of which are listed – the largest of it’s kind in Bavaria.

In addition to the diverse botany, you will find the water lily fountain, a maze, the animal enclosure, the mini golf course and a nature trail.
The Kneipp Island with a graduation tower and water treading basin are very close to the hotel as well as the rose garden and the exercise park with its sports equipment.
It is particularly relaxing and refreshing to simply take a walk in the spacious green area and enjoy a coffee or a delicious sundae on our terrace while you are out and about.

The varied design of the facility enables players of all levels to enjoy interesting rounds of golf.
