Kassel— 2 nights
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.Explore Kassel's surroundings by going to Edersee (in Waldeck), Gaenseliesel (in Goettingen) and Tierpark Sababurg (in Hofgeismar). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Staatspark Karlsaue, pause for some photo ops at Herkules-Statue, get outside with Insel Siebenbergen, and explore the historical opulence of Schloss Wilhelmshohe.
