As the name suggests, Kassel has many Castles. Kassel is mostly famous for the Brothers Grimm. The brothers Grimm are famous for writing fairy tales and it is easy to see where they get their inspiration in this town.

Our first impressions of Kassel were not great. It reminded me of the slimy part of Frankfurt actually. But as you slowly moved away from the train station the town soon became an impressive town. The town has a perfect blend of old and new with modern features blending in well with the old buildings.

At first we were going to spend 2 days in Kassel but we decided to do only one since the weather was horrible. That means we didn't have much time to explore Kassel and many of the older castles are located well outside the city. Instead we decided to explore the park that was located closest to the city which contained one of the castles. There is real point in me explaining the park, I 'l'm let pictures do the talking. But I can say that it was a very relaxing walk.

After walking through the park we headed home.

With some luck I should be heading to Berlin on Wednesday and should come back on Sunday (4th). If I don't make it this time then I swear I should give up on Berlin! We have our mid semester break from the 3rd - 11th June so I might also be heading to Munich on the 5th - 10th of June. I can't wait. The World Cup starts on the 9th of June so I will be in Munich when the opening game is being played (Deutschland Vs Costa Rica, go Costa Rica!) After being here for 4 months I can say that if I see Michael Ballack's or Oliver Kahn's face again I'm going to scream!!! (For those of you who don't know Michael Ballack is the captain of the German Soccer team). Anyway Ciao
