Hesse

4.2
Though relatively small in size, Hesse is not only rich in tradition, culture, and art, but also in numerous modern tourist attractions. This is one of the country's most prosperous regions. It includes the city of Frankfurt, a global financial powerhouse renowned for its futuristic skyline. The region is known for its outstanding public transportation, high quality of life, leafy parks, and lively nightlife. The city streets are lined with small cafes, innovative museums, bustling beer halls, and an array of other places to visit while in town. Hesse also contains huge green areas interspersed with lush river valleys and pristine national parks. Its quiet countryside surrounds hillside villages and medieval towns. Be sure to indulge in some of the local specialties while on your holiday: outstanding white wines, apple ciders, and a wide range of award-winning cheeses. Use our Germany itinerary planning app to arrange your visit to Hesse and any other destinations in Germany that take your fancy.
