  • 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!
  • Full of great fachwerk. I enjoyed the market a lot
  • A must for visitors of Hessen with interests in history.
  • 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.
  • Very nice and really intresting place
