When traveling in the North of Hesse you’ll find a fabulous bunch of little towns and villages; and Lohfelden is no exception, located at the southern end of Kassel. Truth be told, there isn’t too much to see here, but what is here will have you duly impressed.
If you’re a serious art lover then look no further than the Monastery Weißenstein and Schloss Wilhelmshöhe (the latter in Kassel). The castle is now filled with many works of art, most notable are the many from 17th century Baroque painters from Spain, the Netherlands, Italy, and Germany (of course!). To top it all off, this 12th century monastery is a work of art in its own right with Protestant services still held in its historical chapel.
Lohfelden’s Parish church Alban is another piece of art and architecture. This church has been looking after this town for over a millenia since it was built in 1008. But, its the nearby 14th century Martinskirche that’s been the final resting place of Hessian Counts and many important townsfolk.
If you’re up for exploring around, the Hessian countryside couldn’t be a better place to do it. Rent a bicycle, follow a hiking trail, or even take a short train ride. No matter what you choose, you’ll be more than pleasantly surprised by what can be found around these parts.
As you can see, Lohfelden is a great town to visit if you’re looking for beautiful artwork and spectacular architecture. And its quiet serene beauty will only have you even more impressed with this town.
