Kassel is the only major city in northern Hesse and with the Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe and the water features UNESCO World Heritage. The fact that Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe is the largest mountain park in Europe may have gotten around in the meantime. But Kassel has even more remarkable uniqueness. It is the capital of the German fairytale road. It has the third largest museum density of Germany. Experience unique museums, exhibitions, natural events. The art exhibition Documenta (every 5 years) has made Kassel known throughout the world. Take your time and explore Kassel on foot or by public transport. It is certainly worth it, because you will take unforgettable impressions and experiences with you.
