Whether you're seeking quaint half-timbered villages, vibrant international cities or wide open natural landscapes on your holiday, Hessen has a huge variety of destinations to choose from. Explore the castles and forests that inspired legends and fairy tales, visit a wealth of UNESCO World Heritage sites or wander around world class art collections at modern museums. Hike through peaceful valleys, cycle through rolling vineyards or hang-glide over volcanic rocks; amble around farmers markets or shop till you drop at high end boutiques. Soak at a thermal spa, have a glass of local wine in a rustic tavern or finish your trip with a Michelin-starred meal. Visit Hessen: there's something here for everyone.
