‪A local jewel‬
ספט׳ 2018
‪Working locally I took the opportunity to visit the Schloss Wilhelmsthal for an afternoon. I did not take the guided tour, but will next time. The grounds are very interesting and the restoration is definitely a work in progress with a lot to do. It took me two hours to walk the grounds with my camera and I will return next spring/summer. ‬

‪Tour of the schloss‬
משפחה • פבר׳ 2018
‪Came here with my three year old and my mother. This is a guided tour only access castle, like most. They do a normal tour, about 1 hour, and a kids tour. We took the normal tour and kept our three year old away from all the pretty things. She was so excited to see where the "princesses" slept and ate and danced. Very beautiful castle, rokoko style with lots of plated gold ornaments and beautiful fabrics. Worth a visit if you are around. Admission is reasonable. Do not go to the schlosshotel, they had terrible service and bad coffee, we went there after the tour. The castle is very cold, no heating, so dress warm if you are going in wintertime. There are no elevators or personal lifts so you need to be able to walk. No prams allowed. ‬

‪What an amzing place,‬

‪A hidden gem in the German country side near Kassel

The park land is compact but so beautiful we had a very simple picnic , (there is no facility for catering ) we walked in the park landscape escorted by sheep ,kept there to maintain the grass. The house itself is loverly and a bargain tour by a well informed guide at 4 euro each . The history is tightly tied in with British history and fascinating

It's local council run , a sleeper by my reconing , needs a coffee shop , and the best looking lips ever

Top tip , take a picnic even if it's a dull day you won't be disappointed‬

‪Great time to walk and relax‬
לבד • מאי 2015
‪This castle is in the front part of the park but there are much more to enjoy on the back. There are some activities during Summer (flowers exhibition, old cars enthusiast, etc.) that make it worth the visit. You will see sheeps keep the grass low :)
There are some benchs to sit, relax, enjoy the atmosphere and wonder how this place was during medieval age..‬

‪A lovely German Schloss beautifully looked after.‬
אפר׳ 2015
‪Beautifully maintained with everything as it was when used by the the rulers of this part of Germany. Plan on taking a couple of hours to see it properly. It is a few kms. from Kassel in a lovely area with forests, and open countryside. It has lots of wonderful furniture etc.‬

‪Tucked-away rococo gem in hilly green "middle Germany"‬
זוגות • אוג׳ 2013
‪The 18th century gigantic hill-side fantasy of Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe (crowned by a huge bronze replica of the Farnesian Hercules and enlivened by an impressive series of cascades and fountains) is well-known, but a few kilometers to the north another veritable jewel of 18th century art and architecture is to be discovered: the Louis XV garden palace of Wilhelmsthal. It's a veritable gem; its interior decoration, furniture (as far as preserved) and appointments are of the highest quality and furthermore painstakingly restored during these past decades. Now the surrounding park with its statuary and fountains awaits restoration, the completion of which will require enormous funds... Definitely worth a detour when on an art-historical trip of Germany.‬

‪We visited late in the day, so we were no longer able to take a tour. However the grounds are just amazing. There are signs throughout the property that tell a little about what you are seeing. We found it very interesting, especially considering that the property was built mid 1700!‬

‪sumptously decorated interiors, built by grandfather of builder of schloss wilhelmshohe, 1hr by public transport from ci‬

‪Schloss Wilhelmsthal is much less famous than schloss wilhelmshohe.
The palace is built by the grandfather of the man who built Schloss Wilhelmsthal. As I am a palace fanatic & into all things which are beautiful, I have decided to take the 1 hr tripf rom city centre to schloss wilhelmsthal. The interior of Schloss Wilhelmsthal features more original interior decor compared with schloss Wilhelmshohe. I love the brightly lit , elegantly decorated interiors. The castle is a summer residence for the builder & his mistress. Yes, mistresses wield great power all along. An entire palace is built in the honour of this particular mistress. Unlike palaces built as military fortress, the palaces built for mistresses are for live-in purposes & lavishly decorated! Hence, these palaces are much more beautiful & interesting to visit. During our visit, an old shepherd was actually out on the garden with his sheepdog & his herd of sheep!‬
