Palace Gardens, Trier: 3 reviews and 8 photos
The Palace Gardens in front of Trier's Electoral Palace were a desolate parade ground from the days of Napoleon through WWII. After the war, with the renaissance of Trier, the once-sterile marching field for soldiers became magnificent public gardens. The gardens feature reflecting pools and statues of German kings & Greek gods, along with peach trees, colorful flowers, and smooth walking paths. Much of the garden is lined with the ancient city wall (at this point, the eastern wall of the city).
At the east end of the gardens stands the Basilica and the Electoral Palace. The western end boasts the impressive Imperial Baths. Along the wall in the east side of the gardens is the Rheinlandesmuseum.
