The old town is surrounded by a circle of parks and gardens, which were built exactly where the former fortifications were located. On the northeastern edge of the old town you find such a nice garden with a flower clock (since 1907) and a chime of Meissen porcelain (1966).

Zittau was host of the first Saxon State garden exhibit in the early 1990s. Leftovers are to find in particular in the western district of the town (Westpark).

Another 'green lung' of the town is the so called Weinau, an English style park with pond, restaurant, the zoo, tennis courts ... just a nice place to walk and relax.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
