The cone-shaped trees each had an interesting statue at its base. There's a pond and a fountain; it would be a lovely place for a picnic. And even at a lower altitude, there were still plenty of vistas; you could see Marienberg Fortress and several churches in the distance. Overall, the gardens are a nice place for a stroll. Maybe next time we'll tour the inside of the Residenz.
