    The Kromlauer Park is worth a visit in every season. Kromlau not only has the park to offer. There is a campsite, a lake, the park railway, a good range of apartments u.s.w. Kromlau is also a good starting point for cycling u. Walking tours.

    Very nice spacious park. The deeper you walk into the park, the fewer visitors you will encounter. However, the Rhodedendron bushes are less there. I would like to have a few more benches, where you can eat your brought cuddle :)

    It smells wonderful when the rhododendron is blooming.
    It is a pity that at the moment the Rakotz bridge is being renovated and there is no water underneath.

    The Azalea and Rhododendron Park Kromlau is a 200-hectare landscape park in the Kromlau district of the Gablenz municipality in the Görlitz district. It is considered the largest open-air rhododendrons as a landscape park in Germany and is always open with free entry. Among the most interesting buildings in Kromlauer Park are the Kromlauer Schloss and the Rakotzbrücke (Rakotz = Sorbian for cancer), which is popularly known as the Devil's Bridge, built from basalt and field stones from 1863 to 1882. Your semicircle is reflected in the lake and forms a complete circle. It spans the Rakotzsee, but can no longer be entered (span: 35 m). The basalt columns arranged in the lake are called organs. A number of hiking trails open up the park and the other sights.
