The lower Altstadt's hilltop cemetery was converted to a public park in 1913. Today its lawns, arbors, playground, and formal gardens draw leisurely couples and families with young children. The gardens are planted with azaleas, irises, rhododendron, and rose varieties such as Ingrid Bergman (deep velvet red), Maria Callas (bright magenta), Christopher Columbus (peach), Cleopatra (red tips, orange interior), and Lady Di (small and pink).

A tough walk up from the old town but well worth it. Great view of the town from up above.
