In 2012 Bamberg was the venue of the State Garden Show. The park has been largely preserved, is freely accessible and offers five playgrounds.
The Stadtpark im Hain is the green lung of Bamberg. Many walks lead through the Theresien- and Luisenhain as well as the botanical garden.
Around 4,500 roses grow in the rose garden in the inner courtyard of the Neue Residenz. A beautiful sight from the café and with a wonderful view of the Michaelsberg and over the old town.
