Central Germany is the place where you'll find the heart of the country. The cities and towns of the area are beautiful and enduring and have elements specific to the region.
The Kurhessisches Bergland region is hilly and densely wooded, featuring pristine meadows and valleys nestled amongst the Fulda, Eder and Schwalm rivers. Nearby, the Knull Hills forests, which have such a mysterious aura that they're reputed to be the inspiration for the "Little Red Riding Hood" fable, lurk deeply and darkly. The ready availability of trees is one reason for the timber-framed houses that fill the area. This is lumberjack country, and the people live hard and play hard, welcoming visitors to join them in the restaurants and alehouses of Fritzlar, Melsungen, Alsfeld and Schwalmstadt.
Head to Weserbergland for a look at the Weser Renaissance and a boundless collection of castles and renaissance buildings. Visit the castles Polle, Corvey and Buckeburg to see museums, courts and exhibitions that take you back into the renaissance. You will feel like a Lord or Lady in Weserbergland as you cast your eyes on the galleys, spires and battlements of a castle built to defend the domain from marauders.
