Experience nature and culture in the royal seat of Kassel

    Kassel in northern Hesse combines extensive, magnificently landscaped parks with a modern art and cultural scene. Located in the middle of the Kassel mountains, Kassel in northern Hesse was once an important royal seat. Since then, Hercules, the city's landmark, has watched over Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe, which has been declared a World Heritage Site. Here, the Löwenburg castle, baroque trick fountains and Wilhelmshöhe Palace with its extensive picture gallery invite you on a journey into the magnificent past. Documenta, one of the most important exhibitions of contemporary art, has been held in Kassel every five years since 1955. It always leaves new traces throughout the city, including the 7,000 oak trees planted by Joseph Beuys or the Sky Striker at Kassel Central Station. In the city center, you will find a wide range of shopping opportunities around Königsplatz with the classicist Museum Fridericianum. The interactive Grimmwelt museum commemorates the Brothers Grimm, who were enthusiastic Kassel residents.
