Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe
Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe – Wasserspiele

The monumental water displays of the Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe were begun by Landgrave Carl of Hesse-Kassel in 1689. A giant statue of Hercules dominates the hill. Reservoirs and channels behind the Hercules Monument supply water to a complex system of hydro-pneumatic devices that supply the site’s large Baroque water theatre, grotto, fountains and 350-metre long Grand Cascade. Beyond this, channels and waterways feed a series of dramatic waterfalls and wild rapids, culminating in the geyser-like Grand Fountain which leaps 50m high.
