History and culture
From Rembrandt to graffiti art: in the heart of the city, the treasures of Germany's third largest museum are right on your doorstep. In particular, the Museum Fridericianum, the centrepiece of documenta, the world's most important contemporary art exhibition, is just a stone's throw away. In addition, visitors should not miss Kassel's landmark, the mighty statue of the Greek demigod Hercules, and the Wilhelmshöhe park with its lush trees. Covering an area of 2.4 square kilometers, it is the largest of its kind in Europe and, together with the Baroque fountains, Löwenburg Castle and Wilhelmshöhe Castle, belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage.
