Wörlitz Details

When you arrive at the Worlitz hotel that you’ve booked with, don’t be surprised if you can smell flowers from your window, whether it’s a discount hotel or a 5 star hotel. The town of Worlitz in Saxony-Anhalt is most often referred to in conjunction with its neighboring city as the Dessau-Worlitz Garden Realm, or the English Grounds of Worlitz. This name comes from the fact that the town contains an incredible English Garden park, created in the late 18th century. The Dessau-Worlitz Garden Realm has been designated a World Heritage Site.The Dutch influenced Oranienbaum Palace was completed in 1683, though the palace and park were later redesigned in the Chinese style of the time. The gardens contain one of the largest orangeries in Europe. The Worlitz Palace was completed in 1773 as the home of Duke Leopold. It was the first Neoclassical structure of its kind in Germany. The lake on the grounds used to feature a model of Mount Vesuvius that was rigged to appear to shoot fireworks. For a unique attraction, visit Villa Hamilton and its manmade island of rock.
