    The Park Schönbusch is one of the earliest landscaped gardens in Germany. From 1775 the Archbishop of Mainz Friedrich Carl von Erthal had his game park redesigned in English landscape style. The first building in the park, designed by the architect Emanuel Joseph von Herigoyen, was the Electoral Pavilion. It was built from 1778 to 1782 as a small classicist summer palace with exquisite furnishings in the style of Louis-seize and is now called "Schönbusch Palace".Until 1790, the garden artist Friedrich Ludwig von Sckell completed the installation. Embedded in charming landscapes with artificial lakes and "mountains" there are staffage buildings such as lookout tower and red bridge, friendship temple and philosopher's house, hamlets and shepherd's houses.In the Visitor Center (former kitchen building), the exhibition "Everything Shines Nature" informs about the history and development of the park.Source: Bavarian Administration of State Castles, Gardens and Lakes

    The park is beautifully landscaped and recommended for any tour planning. For the little ones a nice playground is available and a small round with the rowboat on the lake makes the hearts of the adults beat faster. Opportunities for retreat are available in various forms (restaurant, beer garden and kiosk).

    There is also a hedgerow labyrinth, with a side observation tower. This is how parents can help the kids
