The oldest public park in Germany was promoted by Count Rumsfeld (an American - Benjamin Thompson) and designed by Friedrich von Sckell in the Serpentine Style. The central feature is the circular Monopteros Temple. It stands on a mound and overlooks the park (and is pinpointed by the marker on the location map below - visible if you zoom in). Von Skell was the court gardener to the garden-loving Elector Carl Theodor. It was intended to be, and is, a real people's park 'for the purpose of exercise and recreation'. Today it is one of Europe's largest city parks (5km by 1.5km) and is a popular area for nude sunbathing.
