Covering an area of 150 hectares (370.6 acres), the Stadtpark is the city's second biggest park and a magnet for joggers, cyclists and sunbathers during the warm summers. The lake is a great place for a swim (temperature permitting) and sport enthusiasts may find themselves being asked to join in a game of football with the locals. The southern part of the park contains a garden for the blind, while a fantastic Planetarium is located in the north-western section. On balmy summer nights films and concerts (often by some of the biggest names in the music business) take place on the open-air stage that is the City Park Freilichtbühne ; an experience not to be missed for visitors here in the summer.
I live nearby the city park, and it really is beautiful. During the summer time, it's somewhat crowded, but always a good atmosphere. There is a beautiful flower garden, and a nice little lake at one end of the park. There is also an old water tower that is now a planetarium, which I suggest visiting. They have a variety of shows, which can be expensive but are usually worth it.
