These fascinating man-made and natural wonders are the latest to make it onto UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe, Kassel, Germany

15 of 20

From its hilltop perch, a 27-foot copper statue of Hercules stands sentinel over this 590-acre water park, whose Grand Cascade spills down along stone steps for 1,150 feet. The park, begun in 1696 by a Prussian ruler and completed nearly 150 years later, uses a complex hydropneumatic network to supply water to the Baroque water theater, grotto, and fountains, which in turn feed dramatic waterfalls, wild rapids, a lake, and secluded ponds. wilhelmshoehe.de
