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
The Martinskirche – destroyed in 1943 and rebuilt 1954-60
The Brüder Grimm Museum next to the New Gallery with two installations of the open air exhibition – ALLES UNTER DEM HIMMEL GEHÖRT ALLEN
Lastly some more impressions of Kassel
