The construction progress sign as you approach from the parking lot showed a timeline where restoration is complete by 2011... Fast forward to 2018 and I counted 6+ cranes and scaffolding over 2/3s of everything to look at. The statue, the fountains, the waterfalls, the...More

Amazing structure, surrounded by a huge park. Aqeudects, water features, gardens, parkland, what's not to like? Now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Time your visit for the waterfall or evening light show.

It is cool to see but it is under construction right now. I think it is destined to be open for summer 2018.

It's a fair trek up the stairs, not for those with joint problems or who have a thing for heights, but once up at the tops the view a quiet stunning. Go on a nice day

We visited the statue twice. Once in 2016 and again in December 2017. It's a great tourist attraction with amazing views and highly recommended if you are in Kassel.

No stroller way down by the water, but do check when the water will be on. I think it is Wednesday and Saturday. Better still look at the top and then catch the free bus to the bottom.
