The place is beautiful all around. The collection is surprisingly reach of Rubens. The walking through the floors is not comfortable and curating is minimal. Yet the treasures inside are amazing.

For something to do in Kassel, take the Number 1 tram to Wilhelmshohe Park and than walk up to the Schloss Wilhelmshome. The Museum is only €3 to enter and well worth the visit (although €5 to take a photo is a bit unwarranted). Visit...More
