One of the most beautiful destinations for families is the Petersberg in Nordhausen, which offers a fantastic view of the city and versatile play and sports facilities.
The Petersberg is very centrally located in the heart of the almost 1100 year old city of Nordhausen. The area was completely redesigned in 2004 as part of the Thuringian State Garden Show. The former state horticultural show area makes children's hearts beat faster with its many play and leisure facilities. Water games at the Petri tower, a large playground for climbing, shimmying, swinging and sliding, a water playground in the Petersberg garden, a basketball court and a small football field are just some of the stations for young visitors to the Petersberg. The large skater facility with elements such as half-pipe, bench, punchbowl, pyramids as well as smaller and larger edges is also popular. Brave ones dare to climb the 20-metre-high climbing tower, which allows the ascent in different degrees of difficulty. Supervised climbing takes place here every Friday from 2 to 7 pm.
The Petersberg in Nordhausen also invites you to take a walk. In the middle of the Petersberg stands the 62-metre-high Petri Tower, one of the distinctive church towers that characterise the silhouette of the Rolandstadt Nordhausen. The "green lung" of the site is the terraced Petersberg garden with its seasonally changing planting, which runs along the historic medieval town wall. Here, too, there are various play facilities for children and places to hide, play, linger and relax. The Petersberg in Nordhausen is therefore a popular and very accessible destination for all generations, as it is easily accessible by tram and, due to its central location directly in the city centre, also easily accessible on foot.
