Unlike the Stadtpark, the Volkspark is rarely overcrowded even on weekends - if you are looking for peace and quiet instead of hustle and bustle, this is the place to be. The park consists largely of hilly wooded areas. Between 1914 and 1933, the park planner Ferdinand Tutenberg deliberately had the green area laid out as a largely natural forest park. Wide paths and smaller trails lead through the park and invite you to take a walk. For active people there are several signposted running routes of varying lengths.
