_DSC2641

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.
