Kassel itself has a lot to offer. Culture-addicts, hobby historians, sport buffs, wellness seekers and nature lovers all can get their share: The famous Brothers Grimm (of fairytale fame) lived and worked in Kassel and here is the beginning of the famous "Märchenstraße" along the places where the fairy tales took place. The World Heritage Site "Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe", Europe's biggest mountain park, can be visited or the popular international modern art exhibition "documenta" which takes place every five years and has left its marks all over town. The national theatre with playhouse, dance and opera as well as Kassel University enlarge cultural city life. River Fulda invites you to take a boat trip or a beautiful walk or bike trip along its riverside starting right at our door. Of course you can use our bikes, kick-boards and children's bikes. If you're into swimming, you can use the indoor/outdoor swimming pool "Auebad" (5 minutes away) or the lake BuGa (10 minutes) next to the park.
