Like a fairy tale

in cooperation with Hessen Tourism

The state in the heart of Germany is full of opportunities for experience and discovery. It is the birthplace of famous poets and thinkers: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was born in Frankfurt and the Brothers Grimm in Hanau. Hessen is also known for its countless castles and palaces, which look as if they have sprung straight out of a fairy tale book by the Hanau brothers. Hessen's 30 spas and health resorts offer a relaxed atmosphere - as do the many Straußenwirtschaften in the Rheingau and on the Hessische Bergstrasse, the state's wine-growing regions. Find out here which specialties Hessen is known for and where you'll find a particularly large number of half-timbered houses.
