Kassel 1/undefined by Tripoto


Starting Point: Bad Frankenhausen (Erfurt)Ending Point: KasselHours on road: ~1.5I woke up at 8AM, and attended mass at 10:30 in the chapel. And after a satisfying lunch it was too late to go along the fairy tale rode. Today was the last day of my trip. So I settled for one spot which was Kassel and visited the Grimm Welt (Grimm World) named after Brother Grimm who wrote the amazing fairy tales, to name a few Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Pied Piper and Hansel and Gretel. The places that inspired these tales were along the fairy tale route and I am saving it for another time.In Kassel, which seemed like a busy industrial town with plenty to do, I spotted the part of it that was still preserved form era of the monarchs. The palace grounds of Wilhelmshoehe ending in a tall monument of the demigod Hercules. One might want to visit the monument in the morning unlike myself as I saw the well lit back of Hercules. The monument is lit up at night and can be seen from most parts of Kassel.
