From Rembrandt to Graffiti (Art)
From the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister to graffiti art in the trendy Schiller quarter to the galleries of the Südstadt: Art is at home in Kassel - even in the streetscape, where the outer works of the world art exhibition documenta repeatedly open up fascinating perspectives. According to the British Guardian in Kassel, the GRIMMWELT is one of the ten best new exhibition venues in the world. You should have seen it? We also find that!
The Neue Galerie near the Karlsaue has always been closely linked to the documenta: not only exhibits from the current exhibition are on display every five years, but also documenta works from the past decades have a permanent place here. From November 22, 2019, the new presentation 'about:documenta' on the entire upper floor invites you to immerse yourself in the fascinating history of the internationally important exhibition series.
02 Fairytale world heritage
The fact that Kassel wears two world titles is due to Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. The hand-copies of their world-famous children's and house fairy tales are part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. You can be admired in the GRIMMWELT, which brings to life the life and work of the famous brothers.
03 You can see here something!
Particularly charming in the landscape: a title that Kassel has earned not only because of its magical parks and gardens.

Whether technology, history, satire, contemporary art or princely life: Look forward to over 20 museums, in which there is a lot to discover!
