Kassel Travel Tip:
Brothers Grimm Museum
Palais Bellevue, location of the Brothers Grimm Museum
Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859) are two of the leading intellectuals in German and European cultural history They shot to fame with their collection of fairy tales, but their pioneering work in the fields of Germanic language and literature, law, history and mythology as well as their political activity are also highly significant. The museum, which was established in 1959, is an institution with an international outlook. Its collections include documents that illustrate the life and works of the Brothers Grimm and their worldwide influence. The exhibition details the most important places where the Brothers Grimm lived and worked in chronological order and in relation to their scientific and political activities. The famous Grimms' fairy tales, which are firmly rooted in our culture, can be found in an appropriately themed room. The exhibition rooms are located in the baroque-style Palais Bellevue which was originally designed as an observatory for Hesse’s Landgrave Karl in 1714 by the French architect Paul du Ry. Multilingual guided tours on request.
