Destination guide

City escapes and quiet, country getaways in Hesse

The lush forests and picturesque towns of central Germany invite travelers to the state of Hesse, which includes both large cities, such as Frankfurt, and a countryside full of vineyards, orchards and gardens. Whether you prefer to spend your time relaxing in thermal springs at the spa town of Wiesbaden, enjoying the thrills of local amusement parks or hopping between grand cathedrals, monuments and historic sites, Hesse is the home of German culture. When it comes to selecting your Hesse vacation rental, your options will span the county, from homes in the heart of cities to quiet forest retreats.

Things to do

Gardens galore on the hills of Hesse

There are many museums and cathedrals to visit, but the prettiest destinations make the most of the state's gorgeous scenery. Bergpark in the northern town of Kassel is a can't-miss attraction, with manicured gardens and stunning fountains descending a hillside. Created in the 1600s, the park is on the UNESCO World Heritage List and features creative water displays, from lakes and ponds to waterfalls, rapids and a large geyser-style fountain. Whether you come to enjoy the great outdoors on picturesque green lawns, or to admire the historical monuments and architectural features, there's something for everyone to enjoy in Bergpark.


Off to the big city in Hesse

Frankfurt is an ideal hub for your adventures in Hesse, as the largest city in the county, full of museums, family-friendly activities and tons of history. One of the best ways to get around the town is via tours that take you around to some of the top sites. The hop-on hop-off excursions mean you can snap photos of iconic spots, such as the Frankfurt Opera House, and disembark to pop into one of the city's many museums. Since the Main River runs through town, you can also opt for a sightseeing cruise, with fantastic views of the modern skyline.


Hesse charms in every season

No matter when you choose to visit Hesse, you'll be treated to pretty scenes and festivities that change with the seasons. In spring and late fall, you can expect chilly temperatures and lighter crowds, perfect for sightseeing around the towns here, bundled in a cozy scarf. Summer's warm temperatures draw the highest crowds, but you'll be treated to scenes of green and longer days. You'll want to book your Hesse vacation rental early, during the peak season of summer and early fall, when Oktoberfest celebrations in the south bring lots of travelers to the country.

Natural features

The great outdoors of Hesse

With rivers, forests and hills setting a gorgeous natural scene in Hesse, there's plenty of opportunities to get outdoors in this part of Germany. If your Hesse vacation rental is in the southern part of the state, bring the family to the Kuhkopf-Knoblochsaue nature reserve on the Rhine River, where you'll be able to canoe on waterways or bike and hike along miles of trails beautified by wildflowers and canopies of green. In northern Hesse, Kellerwald-Edersee National Park offers a large lake for water sports and walks in search of local wildlife in the hilly, forested landscape.
