    You are not allowed to ride a bike in the park. But walking in the park is beautiful. As inconspicuous as the island of Stein looks from the outside, the "amphie theater" and the "underworld" are super exciting.

    This classical building was built between 1788 and 1794. They are the prince's memories of his trip to Italy. One of the sights is the eruption of the volcano for festivities.

The entire complex embodies the memory of the prince and his builder of their stay on the Gulf of Naples and in Sicily.

    The villa and the adjoining grottoes / labyrinth were THE highlight for me.
    Entry = 6 euros. It was definitely worth it!

    The island of Stein with the artificial volcano and the Villa Hamilton is one of the most unusual creations in the Wörlitz Park. The ensemble is intended to commemorate the Prince's trip to Italy. Prince Franz wanted to show his people the most striking sights of Italy in a very small space.
    After decades of neglect, the island was completely redeveloped in the 1990s. The volcano can thus be operated effectively again.

    The island of Stein with the Hamilton house is a little off the beaten track, almost in the extreme south-east of Wörlitzer Park, but is definitely worth seeing.
