Not far from the lively city centre and market square, right by the Cathedral, the wonderful Heylshof Park with its mature trees, putto figures and fountains is an oasis of calm. With views of the impressive Cathedral, the Heylsschlösschen and Heylshof Museum, this is a wonderful place to relax and explore the history of Worms.

The 28 ha city park, affectionately known by locals as the ‘Wäldchen’ (little forest) lies to the south of Worms and was laid out in its current form between 1900 and 1905. It has a big playground, lots of walking and cycling routes and a shady beer garden in the summer. On the south side of Hammelsdamm it adjoins Bürgerweide, the city recreation area, including the zoological garden and the southern Rheinaue water meadows. The Bürgerweide covers 70 ha of the natural flood plain of the River Rhine.

Just a few minutes’ walk from the Festplatz fairgrounds, the Rhine Promenade is an inviting place to walk by the water. Lavender, roses and many other plants lend a Mediterranean charm to the river bank here as it flows through Worms. From the Strandbar 443 beach bar through the park to the boathouse, past the Hagen statue to the Hagenbräu restaurant and Kolb’s beer garden, the Rhine Promenade is certainly worth a visit.
