Park rules for the Karlsaue, issued by the Staatliche Gartenanlagen of the Museumslandschaft Hessen-Kassel The situation with the trail on the Auehang constitutes a legal exception that was reviewed and discussed by different lawyers. This is due to the fact that a trail is not an official walkway and as such falls completely out of the parks system of rules. The park administration can only take responsibility for official walkways, as Mr. Boßdorf, director of the Karlsaue, explained to me. It therefore cannot be liable for visitors to the trail. For this reason, only a limited amount of the park rules apply to the trail. The exceptional legal conditions under which visitors enter the trail are displayed at the trail's entrances on Schöne Aussicht and in the Karlsaue.
