This free alternative street art tour in Kassel is a must-see stop on Germany’s Fairytale Road! Kassel is well-known for being the long-time home of the Brothers Grimm, as well as for its contemporary art scene and breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage park.
Kassel, located on the banks of the Fulda River, was almost completely destroyed during World War II. It was rebuilt in the 1950s and is still home to a number of architectural highlights and notable landmarks. It also has a plethora of impressive cultural offerings.
Kassel has the highest density of MUSEUMS of any city in Germany, and it is also one of the major stopping points along the GERMAN FAIRYTALE ROAD, a 600-kilometer tour dedicated to the lives and works of folklorists, linguists, and legitimate historians Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm.
