The Park on the Fulda riverside was created in the XVII century and withstood a few alterations. From the Renaissance it became an English landscape, with canals, ponds and fountains with statues. Later a baroque palace appeared here, which houses now the Astronomical Museum and Planetarium, with exhibits from ancient times to the present. Here you can see vintage telescope and sextants, sun clock and hourglass. The pride of the collection is the astronomical clock of 1680 from Augsburg, decorated with moving figures and precious stones.
Another interesting building is the marble bath-house, which houses statues and bas-reliefs illustrating the "Metamorphoses" by Ovid. In the park there is an artificial island in the middle of the pond, with a miniature botanical garden.
