Welcome to North Hessen – home of the Grimm brothers
The brothers Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm lived in Kassel over 200 years ago. It was here where they gathered the stories that are known today throughout the world as fairy tales and included in the UNESCO Memory of the World Program.

Many diary entries and letters let us know how much the Grimms enjoyed living here and how connected they felt to their home. Discover the gentle mountain landscape with its forests, lakes and rivers, castles, picturesque medieval towns, stunning parks and gardens. Whether on foot, by bike, on the water or with My Card Plus, the ticket for bus and train, explore the home of the Grimm Brothers – from Willingen to the Werra, from the Weser to the Schwalm.
