Short facts

UNESCO World Heritage Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe

Stroll in front of fairytale backdrops on the paths of the landgraves, art lovers and cultural donors of past centuries and discover their treasures, embedded in beautiful nature.

The largest of its kind in Europe, the Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2013, invites you to take a walk or hike. On the way you will discover numerous beauties from garden art, architecture and culture that inspired Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm during their lifetime. The Hercules, image of the ancient hero and symbol of Kassel, towers high above Kassel, from where you can see the whole city.
At the foot of the Hercules, the water features with their cascades, waterfalls, the aqueduct and the large fountain have been fascinating for 300 years.
