In 2013 I visited at the first time the hillside park in Kassel Wilhelmshöhe. Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe is a unique landscape park in Kassel, Germany. Art historian Georg Dehio (1850–1932),
inspirator of the modern discipline of historic preservation, described the park as "possibly the most grandiose combination of landscape and architecture that the Baroque dared anywhere". The
area of the park is 2.4 square kilometres (590 acres), making it the largest European hillside park, and second largest park on a mountain slope in the world. Construction of the Bergpark, or
"mountain park", began in 1696 at the behest of the Landgraves of Hessen-Kassel and took about 150 years. The Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe is the 38th World Heritage site in Germany, and part of the
universal cultural heritage of mankind.
