Behind high walls lies the old "Orangerie" with two attached glass houses. The building was given its name because frost-sensitive plants were stored there after the Second World War. Today, concerts, films and plays are performed in the Orangery with its unmistakable ambience.
The Volksgarten covers around 14 hectare. Its outer limits are Sachsenring in the north and Vorgebirgswall in the south. Well worth seeing are also the remains of the Lünette and the former Fort Paul which belonged to a Prussian fortress.
