Welcome to Kassel
Although wartime bombing and postwar reconstruction left Kassel looking undeniably utilitarian, you'd hardly know it today. Visitors to this culture-rich, sprawling hub on the Fulda River will discover a pleasant, modern city with a number of interesting and unusual museums and a one-of-a-kind baroque park Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe, that boasts a handsome palace with a priceless art collection and the gargantuan Herkules statue and Wasserspiel (water feature).
Kassel is a university town, attracting a vibrant young population that keeps the nightlife and culture vital. Invest in the time to explore its widely dispersed attractions, and you won't be disappointed.
