The whole of the Hercules Monument, the Schlosspark, and the Palace are worth the visit. I go back every time I am in Kassel. Waterworks runs Wed and Sun starting at 2:30 pm but you need to be at the top by 2 pm to get a good spot. When the waterworks start, the crowd follows the water down the... More

As we were here in winter, we did not tour the park but it must be lovely in summer. The art museum is more than fantastic. 18 Rembrandt's, many Van Dykes and a lot of other great paintings. It is well worth the trip to Kassel just for this!!! Did not bother with tours of the Castle otherwise as we've... More

We enjoyed our walk around the grounds and decided to purchase tickets to see the inside of the castle. We paid five bucks extra to take pictures. The tour is completely in German with no signs, brochures or descriptions in any other languages. That's fine and we planned on my husband translating for me quietly. The real kicker was that...

this is a gorgeous art museum with many Rembrandt's and Ruben's painting. There were very few people in the museum so we had great access. Wish the parking was more handicapped accessible.

We didn't go into the Schloss itself, just admired it within its parkland. I don't know what it would have looked like a hundred years ago but from the hill above the Schloss you can see the perfectly straight road that leads through Kassel for miles as it approaches the building. What an entrance! The park around the Schloss is... More

This place is a must visit. Not only because you will see the Schloss of Wilhelmshohe but also because there is a castle located nearby. The castle is approx 20 minutes walk through the forest (good shoes are a must!). When arriving you will get the best view over the city! The best time to go here is when the... More

We spend several hours going through this beautiful Castle with all the beautiful Paintings. On the top floor were Paintings from Rembrandt which I enjoyed especially. I would recommend this to everyone visiting the area as one of the must see places.
