As Valerie gets ready to kick some USMLE/COMLEX ass in the next few days, I wanted to re-live our most relaxing evenings of the trip, spent in Kassel: the fortress, the River Fulda, and our favorite waiter. These were my favorite nights of the trip because allwe did was sample local beers brought to us by a very handsome waiter while curled up in blankets overlooking the river on top of a tree-covered fortress. It was pure bliss. I try to take myself back there, mentally, when I’m the most stressed out – the kind of place where life was perfect and everything else just kind of faded away into the background…

One of the things we loved about our trip to Germany so much was the fact that we went to lesser-known towns and cities without any real agenda. We showed up at the train station and, in the case of Kassel, found a place to stay via the tourism office, and headed out. There are so many things we loved about Kassel, but the flower island is definitely a favorite in my mind.
Located in Karlsaue Park, Siebenbergen Island is at the southernmost part of the park and accessible by a small bridge. It was only 2 EU to get in, and totally worth it!
Like I said, this was just one of MANY things we adored about Kassel. If you’re ever in the area and looking for something lesser-known to do, make sure you check out the flower island in Karlsaue Park!
