Below the palace is the Palace Park, which today occupies 13 hectares mainly on the west and north sides of the palace. In earlier centuries, under the rule of the landgraves, the park was much larger.

The first known mention of a park on this site is from the year 1441, but it has been repeatedly restructured since then.

For those who are interested in the details of this, "Historical Park Tours" are offered on Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings during the summer months.
