The Wilhelminenaue, former state garden show grounds, is freely accessible to the public since April 2017. The new park offers relaxation, for young and old to experience nature and it is a new habitat for rare plants and animals.
Striking in the young landscape park are the landscape cabinets placed along the meadows, which are wonderful view- and event balconies.
The planners of the state garden show grounds ensured that numerous leisure time uses, in the area of the landscape cabinets along the meadows are possible for all generations also after the exhibition. With these cabinets, rooms for different quiet and active uses were created: for sport offers with a beach volleyball court, a dirt bike area, a playing field, a swinging climbing net, as well as for cultural usage with a lake stage, a lawn stage (open air events), and hedge theater. For other leisure time activities is the barbeque place, the sand play area for children, as well as the lawns for relaxing, playing and gymnastics. The varied game- and sports concept is not only limited to the cabinets: on the river Red Main canoeing is possible and northwest of the meadow see an additional play field was added. Across the meadow, directly by the river Red Main is the water playground.
Neighboring the Red Main are the “Fossilli islands”, a water playground. Behind the panorama cabinet “beautiful view” west of the Wilhelminenaue, you will find the playground “Wolkenkuckucksheim” with oversized bird houses, which create a special background and visual relationship across the Albrecht-Dürer Street. The intensely groomed areas with contemporary horticulture are cared for by the city garden office of Bayreuth.
With the interaction of meadow parks and landscape cabinets, a new and special building block in the city structure is developed, which connects downtown, in an attractive and convincing way, along the Red Main river with the Eremitage and into the open country side.
