While on a Viking River Cruise, I visited Wörlitz, a charming little German town that became famous in the 18th century when one of the earliest Continental European landscape parks was created here. From the very beginning the garden was open to the public.
The Wörlitz garden and palace complex is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Gondola rides are offered across the lake past beautiful buildings including a church and synagogue. Our boatman also took us on an enchanting journey along winding canals through forests, under bridges and past flowers growing along the waterways.
