Kassel Orangery in Karlsaue park, copyright Kassel Tourist GmbH
There are three parks and three palaces to visit in Kassel. The hilltop Wilhelmshöhe park affords a marvellous panoramic view of the town. Also situated on Wilhelmshöhe hill is Löwenburg Castle, a romantic, neo-Gothic ruin. Karlsaue, a baroque park on the banks of the River Fulda, and Wilhelmsthal Palace, a summer residence and hunting lodge, are also well worth a visit.
