  • Adjacent to the historic old town of Bönnigheim on the site of a former yarn factory, a new city district has come to life. The new city park with its exposed Mühlbach forms the backbone of the district. The natural meandering stream is reflected in all the design elements of the park.

    At its eastern point, the park meets the newly designed Schlossplatz. A large waterplay area, with water flowing through to a cleaning bed, and a variety of water levels provide opportunities for different interpretation of use. Inviting both play and relaxation.

    The planted soil zone cleans the water before it is fed to the mill stream. A wooden deck and long bench under a group of trees invite you to linger and spectate. The rear of the castle, which is currently used as a parking lot, is to be transformed into a garden, inspired by the historic garden planning of the late Baroque era.
