Schloss Wilhelmshöhe

  Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe      +49 561 31 68 00     more than a year ago
The huge palace halfway up the Bergpark, originally home to Kassel's Landgraves and visible from much of town, has three excellent museums. Starting from the top, the Gemäldegalerie ('painting gallery') is a fantastic collection of European art spanning 500 years. Highlights here are the paintings by Rembrandt, Frans Hals and Albrecht Dürer. The basement and ground floors host the Antikensammlung, or collection of antiquities; there's everything from Bronze Age art to Greek sculptures and Roman pottery; don't miss the beautiful cork models of Roman buildings by the museum café. The southern Weißenstein wing is the oldest part of the palace, where the sumptuous and original royal rooms from the turn of the 19th century can be visited on guided tours.
