We all know about the Britzer Gardens, but have you ever heard of Gutspark Britz? Let me show you the traditional Baroque style garden and it’s little oasis that requires nothing more than family and friends for a free Easter weekend activity. The Gutspark was built initially as a flower garden in the traditional Baroque style. It’s home to Germany’s first Robina tree and still remains a monumental attraction today. To entertain family, friends and those energetic kids, look no further than the park’s farm yard. Home to a selection of animals including horses, black sheep, goats, cows, chickens and geese, there’s practically a small zoo waiting for you. The best part of the park? Picking up the slightly tattered brushes hanging from the black sheep’s enclosure fence. The sheep go crazy when you rub their backs and brush their heavily knotted coats. The park’s history goes back to the 1600s, as does the manor house’s. There is certainly a lot awaiting you at the park, only 10 minutes from Hermannstraße.
