Overnight stay in Kassel - between modern and classic old town
Until it was completely devastated in the war, the old town of Kassel was one of the most important in Central Europe. Irrespective of its consequences, Kassel still offers a lot of architectural history and things worth seeing. One of the oldest buildings is the old Gothic Church of the Brothers. Construction began around the 13th century and after the church was completed it was first used by the Carmelites.
But that's not all, Kassel has the largest urban square in Germany, Friedrichsplatz, with many restaurants and bistros. The Druselturm towering over 40 meters, which is one of the rare medieval buildings in Kassel. It was once surrounded by Kassel's city fortifications, and today, together with the Gothic Zwehrenturm, it is the only remnant of the former protective wall. A little further away is today's Karlskirche. This baroque church is characterized by its octagonal structure. But the carillon, which consists of a total of 47 bells, also inspires many visitors.
