Bad Driburg Gräflicher Park – A spring walk

Spring flowers in Bad Driburg's Gräflicher Park

Spring is a time to take a spring walk through Bad Driburg's Count's Park. You don't have to be in the Hotel stay. Instead, you can pay the entrance fee to Bad Driburg's Count's Park and enjoy the parks on a walk. When the tulips and daffodils are in bloom, you look forward to sunny days. Then one likes to take the time to explore the themed gardens and park areas that have been laid out between and around the hotel buildings. There is a lot to discover.

The fountain house stands in the center of the park. Here visitors can try the medicinal waters that made Bad Driburg a medicinal bath. The long foyer invites you to stroll. The building was constructed on this site from 1822 to 1824.




Even if you don't want to try the healing waters, a detour to the foyer is worthwhile. There is also a reading room in a side wing. There you can find out about the offers in the bathhouses and in the hotel in brochures.

Before you continue to the wildlife park, it is worth making a detour to the hedge garden. This is behind the fountain house. Hornbeams surround a water mobile. It is by Angela Conner, a sculptor from England.

Wildlife park with herd of fallow deer

Back at the square in front of the fountain house, we turn left. The path leads past bathhouses and hotel buildings to the park area, where the herd of fallow deer from the Count's Park in Bad Driburg roams. The animals roam freely across the site. Visitors can get quite close to them.

However, we turn right and walk past Hölderlin Grove and Diotima Island back to the hotel. There we finally enjoy the spring blossoms in the flower beds around the hotel building.
