  • Hanau - the Brothers Grimm Fairytale

    Rare wild equids, Brothers Grimm Fairytale, important
    cultural and architectural monuments,
    second largest harbour on the Main-Danube canal
    and the old town of Steinheim with its picturesque
    half-timbered houses – all this and numerous
    other attractions make a visit to the economic
    and cultural major centre in the east of the
    Rhine-Main-Region a rewarding experience. The
    birthplace of the brothers Jacob and Wilhelm
    Grimm offers besides historic sites nine museums,
    a considerable selection of galleries as well
    as the most beautiful and biggest weekly market
    in Hesse, which takes place every Wednesday and
    Saturday in front of the Neustädter Rathaus (city
    hall). Hanau attracts a high number of visitors
    from the surrounding areas. Numerous parks,
    nine nature protection areas and seven landscape
    protection areas within the city area make
    it possible to enjoy pure nature in Hanau. The
    guided tours to the Przewalski-wild equids in the
    nature protection area “Campo Pond” or excursions
    to the wild park “Alte Fasanerie” in the city district
    Klein-Auheim are extremely popular.

  • Three cohort forts locations

    The fort on the Salisberg belonged to the older eastern

    The foundation walls of the fort bath-house are visible on the
    grounds of the old cemetery of Kesselstadt. An older military installation

    only used for a short period of time, is situated under today’s town
    centre of Kesselstadt.
