There are parks and gardens dotted all over the city: you’ll find leafy expanses at the heart of Jena as well as tranquil retreats on the outskirts. This is precisely what the locals love about their city. Visitors, too, are always enchanted by the urban lifestyle with a close proximity to nature. It only takes a few minutes to get from the city centre to Paradies Park, a large conservation area on the meadows beside the river Saale, where you can engage in a whole host of leisure activities.

The botanical gardens, the second-oldest of their kind in Germany, are located right at the heart of the city. Incidentally, the early history of the former medicinal garden is closely associated with Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who devoted much of his time in Jena to the natural sciences.

The Griesbachgarten with the Princesses’ Castle and Schiller’s summer house is another tranquil oasis for garden enthusiasts.
