Travel Tips for Kassel

Ahle Wurscht

by King_Golo

This is not so much a local custom, but rather a local food! Ahle Wurscht is as typical for Kassel as the gingerbread is for Nuremberg or the Grüne Sauce for Frankfurt. Ahle Wurscht can be translated with "old sausage", but this should not terrify you. This special kind of sausage tastes best after at least a week. If you get the chance, try it! Many of the local pubs offer Ahle Wurscht as "good with beer". If you want to buy it yourself, go to any butcher in the city - they all have it. Ask for a "Dürre Runde" if you prefer a longer but bent one, or for a "Stracke" if you prefer the long straight one.
Finally, here's my secret tip: The very best, the ultimate Ahle Wurscht can be purchased in a village near Kassel called Ihringshausen. Search for "Fleischerei Lämmerhirt", a butcher just next to the station.


by Nemorino

The Orangerie was first built from 1701 to 1710, in a large formal garden in the French style.

Like most buildings in Kassel, the Orangerie was largely destroyed during the Second World War, and it was still more or less a ruin when it was used as the setting for Documenta 2 in 1959. Restoration was not completed until 1981.

Since 1992 the Orangerie has been the home of the Planetarium and the Museum for Astronomy and the History of Technology, (I remember going there with one of my children shortly after the opening.)

Opening hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 10:00 to 17:00.

Kassel & Arolsen

by B_Caro

I spend most of my childhood in Arolsen.
I have to go through my old pics to see which ones I can put into this page

Be patient! There will be more.

Some really old photos of Arolsen can be find in the travelogue.
