Kassel

Trip Planner Europe  /  Germany  /  Hesse  /  Kassel

Capital of the German Fairy Tale Route

Despite suffering total devastation from bombing raids and house-to-house combat during the Second World War, Kassel today has been revitalized as a city of high education, high culture, and the arts. After the war, the city administration made a determined effort to transform Kassel into and area filled with green spaces and outdoor parks. Combined with its massive art exhibitions and thriving theater scene, the town feels like anything but a dull postwar rebuild. Thanks to its new-age architecture designed primarily during the 1950s, Kassel is one German city that has fully embraced the look and culture of modernity.
