    The park is 42 acres and was built with a mansion and various farm buildings around 1790. Former summer residence of the landgraves and dukes of Hesse-Darmstadt.

    Beautiful park with various older buildings that once probably served the prince as a hunting lodge. In the summer probably also the one or the other wedding takes place.

    The Staatspark Fürstenlager is the former summer residence of the Landgraves and Grand Dukes of Hessen-Darmstadt built in 1790 in Bensheim-Auerbach on the Bergstraße. Nicely restored. There are different tours in the summer months.

    Here resided the former Landgraves and Grand Dukes of Hesse-Darmstadt. With a playful ensemble consisting of manorial houses, caves and pavilions, as well as a princely park, this complex is one of the very special sights in this region.

    The princely camp in Auerbach is a super romantic place. Nice to see ...

    The Fürstenlager Auerbach is an idyllic landscaped park between two slopes. Once at the top you have a great view of the surrounding meadows, vineyards and the Rhine plain.

    Anyone who appreciates the pictures of Monet (Impressionism) and would like to take a look back at this time is recommended to the princely camp. Especially in summer, when the avenue decorated with flowers contrasts the white country buildings, the mood strongly reminds of the light structure of Impressionist paintings. Fantastically beautiful, but also very crowded. The buildings seem to be rented to clubs and so there is often bustle, which harms this atmosphere (in my opinion).
