Kassel — 2 nights
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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Kassel: Gaenseliesel (in Goettingen), Edersee (in Waldeck) and Tierpark Sababurg (in Hofgeismar). There's much more to do: pause for some photo ops at Hercules Monument, step off the mainland to explore Insel Siebenbergen, step into the grandiose world of Schloss Wilhelmshohe, and don't miss a visit to Lowenburg Castle.
