A car hire in Kassel, Germany allows for the convenience of navigating this modern, eclectic city and the surrounding areas at one's own pace. Kassel is situated along the Fulda River where the Weser River begins. Unfortunately the historical buildings of the city's centre were almost completely destroyed during WWII. 90% of the city has been rebuilt in the modern 1950's style. This city is sure to win the hearts of those appreciative of the arts.
Every 5 years Kassel is home to the Documenta. It is a showing of international modern and contemporary art which draws hundreds of thousands of art admirers from around the world. The Documenta dates back to 1955 and is held at a different venue from the last, each time an exhibit is held.
Although Kassel's historical architecture may be lacking in its downtown, there are some significant monuments that should be visited on the city's outskirts. The Wilhelmshöhe Palace is about 6 km from the city's centre and is situated in Bergpark. It was constructed in 1786 and has an impressive fountain which has rushing water that flows over several manmade cascades down a hill to a lake by the palace. 50 metres atop the hill sits the Oktagon, an eight-sided structure where a large statue of Hercules rests and the cascades begin.
