Learn German in Kassel

Welcome to Kassel

Kassel - 1,000 years old - lies in the middle of Germany between Frankfurt and Hanover.
Resident here once upon a time were the landgraves and electoral princes of Hessia, also temporarily Napoleon´s brother Jerôme and later Kaiser Wilhelm II.
This is also one reason for the plurality of the cultural attractions, such as the prestigious picture gallery in the romantic park of Wilhelmshöhe.  With 200,000 inhabitants, Kassel is large enough for a host of different activities, but also small enough for the people to feel at home here.


Kassel´s Culture

Kassel is the city of the Grimm brothers who gained world fame with their fairy stories.  As the landgrave´s librarians, they also discovered here Germany´s oldest literary work, the "Song of Hildebrand".
Every five years, the largest international exhibition of contemporary art - the "documenta" - is held in Kassel.
