Mariannenpark in Leipzig-Schönefeld is the perfect oasis for everyone: those looking for relaxation can comfortably stretch out on their picnic blankets, and children and families can frolic around the two playgrounds. The various sports facilities, such as the football pitch, athletics facility and the swimming pool in the north-east, are perfect for all the fitness buffs. Couples in love and amateur botanists will love the fragrant rose garden. The Mariannenpark is a rare preserved example of a folk garden in the architectural style of the early 20th century. It is on Saxony's list of cultural monuments as a monument to garden and landscape design. A reason good enough to visit.
