  • The open-air museum Hessenpark is always worth a visit! Especially on Sundays, where a farmers ' market takes place. Who visits the the Hessenpark should necessarily take a sourdough bread from the Bakery Museum.

  • Here way to wonderful, how one has lived previously. Beautiful restored half-timbered houses are decorated with allerei shops, workshops. Lovingly made. Particularly the Köhler impressed us. Very knowledgeable. Thank you for that dear Köhler.

  • There are a lot of old houses to see and a lot that they are going to reconstruct. Churches, places for work with all old instruments. It's nice to go with children so they could also not only to see the things, but also play in the street or try their abilities in some of the buildings. There are also training courses if you like colours or doing something with your hands. You also should not forget your food! Places around have very nice tee and other things for drinking, but I couldn't like cakes. And it's really a kind of travel for a long time if you visit everything!
  • Genuine old-school village with the traditional square and classic trades. Ideal time is to visit during the harvest festival. Good food, as well. Make sure to bring cash. No ATM's nearby.
  • A great place for a family outing, and very interesting for everyone.
  • Nice on a sunny Sunday. Good for a walk as well as nice for kids. There is a market with some foods (although not much choice for vegans) and a lovely bakery.
  • A nice place for some family time and relaxation. Add in a lovely dose of history too!
