German Impressions – 2nd stop – Kassel – part 2

In my earlier blog about Kassel I said that 90% of the town was destroyed and had to be rebuilt.  You now find buildings from the 1950s side-by-side with building from the 19th century like the Elisabeth Hospital below.


The buildings below stand along Wilhelmshöher Allee which leads to the Wilhelmshöhe Castle.

The Orangerie, a palace built in 1710 as a summer residence for the landgraves



The ‘Kanzleigebäude’ below was built in the 16th century by Landgrave Wilhelm IV.



The above contrasts with the new buildings across the city
