The UNESCO World Heritage site Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe is only 7 km away from our hotel in Kassel. On over 5.600 hectares, the park offers a vast variety of natural landscapes, activities and attractions - one of which is the Hercules monument at Karlsberg (Charles' Mountain). During the nighttime, the statue and the impressive fountain are wonderfully illuminated. Definitely worth a visit.
The museum is situated at the so-called "beautiful view" between Kassel's town hall and Karlsaue State Park. The exhibition showcases works of art from the 19th century to the present. The main focus is on paintings.
Karlsaue State Park is only a 15-minutes' walk away from the TRYP by Wyndham Kassel City Centre Hotel. Enjoy pleasant walks alongside ponds and water ditches. The Baroque castle Orangery is located in the park. It is home to the Cabinet of Astronomy and Physics and the Planetarium.
Kassel is the hometown of the famous authors of the Grimm Brothers' Children's and Household Tales. Embark on the footsteps of the Brothers Grimm during your stay in Kassel.

The rococo palace Wilhelmsthal is located right in the middle of the Wilhelmsthal Palace Gardens, near the town of Calden. An exhibition showcases pieces of Eastern Asian and European porcellaine. The famous Meissen porcellaine factory from Dresden is especially well represented. The palace and the park are popular excursion destinations for both nature and art lovers.
