Azalea and Rhododendron Park Kromlau
The Azalea and Rhododendron Park Kromlau is a 200 acres (81 ha) landscaped park in the municipality of Gablenz, Germany (less than 6 kilometers from the Polish border). It was built in the 19th century. The park has no entry fee and can be accessed any time. The famous Rakotzbrücke (also called the Devil's Bridge) is a short walk from the free car parking area. The main parking area near the Rakotz Bridge is conveniently located in the village of Kromlau.
The park is a beautiful example of an English garden and has many small ponds and lakes. What makes Azalea and Rhododendron Park so special is Rakotzbrücke, a bridge that was built during the mid 19th century. The bridge was specially built to create a circle when it is reflected in the waters beneath it – a popular photo opp. The bridge's artificially-formed basalt columns were specially shipped from distant quarries.
