Description:

Descending a long hill dominated by a giant statue of Hercules, the monumental water displays of Wilhelmshöhe were begun by Landgrave Carl of Hesse-Kassel in 1689 around an east-west axis and further developed into the 19th century. Behind the Hercules Monument, reservoirs and channels supply water to a complex system of hydropneumatic devices that supply the site's large baroque water theatre, grotto, fountains and Grand Cascade, 350 meters long. Beyond that, channels and waterways wind across the axis, feeding a series of dramatic waterfalls and wild rapids, the geyser-like Grand Fountain that springs 50 m high, the lake and secluded ponds that enliven the Romantic garden created in the 18th century by Carl's great-grandfather, Elector Wilhelm I.
