B&B Hotels in Kassel — In the heart of Germany
The big city of North Hesse is the third largest city in the state of Hesse and, with 200,000 inhabitants, the third largest metropolis in this area. The city shows itself in green and, of course, manageable beauty. With its green algae and mountain park, Wilhelmshöhe is one of the most beautiful in Europe. The baroque bridge that can be found there was chosen as a World Heritage Site in 2013, which only underlines its uniqueness.
The mountain park extends well over 2 square kilometers in the Habichtswald. Anyone visiting this place will find themselves in Europe's largest mountain park. Such a park amazes every one of its guests - even its construction took no less than an amazing 150 years. Construction began at the end of the 17th century. Fountains, various water points and even a waterfall can be found here.

Kassel in focus: Cultural wealth and artistic treasures
Visitors to Kassel rave about the variety of art collections that can be found, for example, in “Der Documenta”, one of the largest international exhibitions. Contemporary culture in particular can be admired here, and so hundreds of thousands of visitors meet in Kassel every year. “Die Documenta” in the city contains works of art from past decades and is also a modern-appealing experience for the eye — making a visit to the “Documenta” city almost a must for city trip lovers.
The Grimmwelt exhibition houses everything German fairy tales have to tell, such as Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White or Mrs. Holle — the museum is on this in Kassel and the resulting collection is as unique as it is rare. More art collections can be admired at Wilhelmshöhe Palace and it houses over 500 creative works that date back to the 17th century.
Overnight stay in Kassel — Between modern and classic old town
Until it was completely devastated during the war, the old town of the historic residential city of Kassel was one of the most important in Central Europe. However, regardless of its misfortunes, Kassel still offers a lot of architectural history and sights to see today. The Old Gothic Brethren Church is one of the oldest buildings. Construction began around the 13th century. It was first used by the Carmelites in the 18th century and after the church was completed.
But that's not all, Kassel has the most extensive urban square in Germany, Friedrichsplatz, with many restaurants and bistros. The Drusel Tower, which rises over 40 meters, is one of the rare medieval buildings in Kassel. It was once surrounded by Kassel's city fortifications, although together with the Gothic Zwehr Tower, it is now the only remnant of the former protective wall. A little further from this is today's St. Charles Church. This baroque church is characterized by its eight-sided structure. But the glockenspiel, which consists of a total of 47 bells, also inspires many visitors.
