Stammheim is one of the lesser-known districts of Cologne, but has more art and nature to offer than anywhere else in Cologne. The castle park can be recognized by the elaborate sculptures that tower out of the greenery. Every year on Whitsun the respective season of the park founded in 2002 is opened with new works of art. In the park itself you can move freely and be part of nature.

Unfortunately, the Kölnpfad the Stammheim castle park only, a side trip for hikers or even a visit here is worth it in my opinion every once in a while.
The Stammheim Castle was destroyed by a bomb attack in 1944, but the park was preserved. The old tree population as well as a sculpture exhibition and occasional remnants of the old castle make the small park walk very entertaining.

The 'art' shown here is for one thing nothing and great for the other. There are very funny pieces. There is a golden pug with wings, a golden baby chair or something similar to an alien on a branch. I can highly recommend the Schlosspark to shake your head, to wonder and to laugh.

The Stammheim Palace and its park had already become a center of contemporary art and cultural life in the 19th century thanks to the family of the former owners. The palace park has been building on this past since 2002 when it was used as an exhibition area. Some of the objects shown make obvious reference to the history of the former castle and its residents. A large part of the objects in the park are permanent installations, as can be seen from the type and anchoring by massive concrete bases and screw connections. This number of objects, which has increased since the beginning of the exhibition, as well as the vitae of the respective artists with information on their works are recorded in annually updated catalogs of the art exhibition, which are carried out by a voluntary group that supports the organization under the name "Initiative Kultur Raum Rechtsrhein" (short: KRR ) to be created.In addition to a diverse nature and horticultural design, the park also offers people looking for relaxation walks that are surrounded by numerous objects of modern art.
