"Schloss Wolfsgarten near Langen" Langen by christine.j

Langen Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 37 photos

Update 2010:
These are the days the park will be opened this year:
15th and 16th May in spring, and 17th to 19th September in autumn.

Langen is a small town very close to Frankfurt.It's mostly known for being the seat of the main air-traffic control in Germany.

Close to Langen there is an old hunting lodge called Schloss Wolfshagen. We had heard about it and its beautiful, old park, which is only open to the public a few days a year.
This weekend was one of these days.
As we had planned to see an exhibition in Frankfurt, we thought we'd stop in Langen for a while and see the park.

We never made it to the exhibition!

This is a truly enchanted place, absolutely beautiful.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A wonderful park
  • Cons:Only open a few times a year
  • In a nutshell:If you like gardens, try to go there when it's open

    What a lovely place to visit. Sad story about the Princess and her gorgeous little house. Thought the gardens were beautiful.

    How lucky you were to find this place open to the public! It looks lovely and full of interest. I'm glad the princess had the fairytale house to herself if only for a year.

    I never knew there was such a nice castle and park near Langen. -- Four hours to Darmstadt? That really is slow. I can get there much faster on my bicycle. (I usually go through the woods on bike route # 17.)
