German Impressions – 2nd stop – Kassel

Kassel is located on the Fulda River in northern Hessen.  In 1943 bombing raids destroyed 90% of the city.  During the 1950s it was almost completely rebuilt.  The Wilhelmshöhe Palace is situated above the city.  I spent a long time in the Bergpark Wilhemshöhe admiring the changing colours.

  1. in Kassel hattest du auch ein modernes Gebäude. Ich denke, das wäre wichtig, weil erstens dein “Spiegelungscharakter” da rüberkommt, zweitens passt es zu einer Stadt, die , wie du schreibst, 1950 ff wieder aufgebaut wurde.
