»Wörlitz is neither a regional nor a German attraction; it is a European, a world issue...«

Wörlitz invites you to relax

Apart from the artistic pleasure and the satisfaction of the drive for literacy, the Wörlitz Park is an ideal place for recreation and relaxation. No matter if you go on a gondola ride on the waters of the Park (rides at night are even more romantic), go for a walk (there are also very quiet parts of the Park), or simply sit down on a bench-there are many possibilities to enjoy the Wörlitz Park with all senses.

The hotels in Wörlitz (partly with a wide wellness offer), restaurants, guest houses, holiday flats, and private rooms invite its guests to stay a little longer.

The town of Wörlitz belongs to the Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz, which in turn has been part of the Biosphere Reserve of the Middle Elbe River since 1988. This area is excellent for hiking, bycicle tours, and carriage rides. We especially recommend the tour "Prince Franz", which leads through the whole Garden Kingdom. It covers all parks that belong to the Garden Kingdom and one can get a good picture of this unique cultural landscape, originated under the reign of Prince Franz in the course of his reforms (land improvement) about 200 years ago. This round trip of approximately 31 miles (50 km) can also be done in stages or one can go part of the way using the Dessau-Wörlitz Railway (seasonal operation).
