Goenneranlage is a historic park and botanical garden in the middle of Lichtentaler Allee, the strolling avenue in Baden Baden. It was donated by the German-American coffee king, Hermann Sielcken and was named after the mayor Albert Gönner. The park has a strictly symmetrical design with hedges and rose bushes placed in strict symmetry to each other. 

It is also called a rose paradise by rose-lovers, thanks to the countless varieties of roses that are found here. A famous landmark in the park is the Josephine Bridge and the Josephine fountain designed in Art Nouveau style. There are also many benches to relax. 

In the three days I was at Baden Baden, I visited the park twice - first, on a Sunday evening when I found it a bit crowded and then once more the following Monday morning when there was almost nobody in the park. Here are some pictures I took of the park. If you are traveling to Baden Baden, this is one place you can't miss! 

The park is open all 7 days of the week from 8am-11pm.
