Schloss Wilhelmshohe, Kassel

4.7
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Kassel
One of Germany’s most beautiful Rococo palaces--and the site of one of the world's largest Rembrandt collections--Schloss Wilhelmshohe was built between 1786 and 1798 among extensive gardens that are typical to the late Baroque period. Tour the palace to see the fully furnished imperial apartments, or spend some time exploring the grounds. The middle section of the castle, mostly destroyed during World War II, was rebuilt as an art museum in the early 1970s. Examine the antiquities and graphic arts collections, as well as the Gallery of the Old Masters. If you have time, hike to the top of the hill, where a statue of Hercules presides over the city below. Put Schloss Wilhelmshohe on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kassel day trip planning tool .

  • Kassel is beautiful, Hercules is Kassel, Kassel is Schloss Wilhelmshöhe... We had spent a very active culture day during our training in Kassel. And there, three of the most interesting cultural site visited (Schloss Wilhelmshöhe, the Neue Galerie and the State Theatre). We were able to experience an impressive performance of the Opera "Jenufa". In short: Kassel presented us as lovable and family-friendly cultural city ;)

  • The castle is situated in the Mountain Park Wilhelmshöhe and looks impressive even from the outside. We visited it in the part of the tour through the white stone wing. She was very informative, were happy to answer questions. The rooms and furniture are wonderfully preserved or prepared and gave a glimpse of super in that time. There's a wonderful wedding room, where I immediately could imagine to marry. Also in the castle: the 'Old masters' Gallery also well worth seeing.

  • Guided tours are on the hour possible and quite cheap, duration approximately 45 min. You should plan some extra time for the path through the Park. The rooms contain many original equipment and decorations.
