Northern Hesse: a lovable region and a great place to live
The "soft" location qualities can unreservedly be referred to as the strengths of northern Hesse. Discover the region with its intact nature, a cultural programme of supraregional importance and leisure and health care facilities in the numerous northern Hesse tourist resorts and spas.
The low living costs, which are clear in the housing market, in particular, also make the region a great place to live in. More than 100 museums, 20 festivals and series of concerts and ten theatres and open air theatres invite visitors to northern Hesse, to sophisticated and lively entertainment.
Sport, culture and leisure activities can be found in all parts of northern Hesse: whether it is the Bad Hersfeld Festival, which enchants thousands of people every year; the fascinating half-timbered towns in the Schwalm-Eder district; the ski jumping in Willingen; the "Open Flair" Festival in Eschwege, which brings young people from the whole of Germany to the region; or the largest mountain park in Europe and UNESCO natural world heritage site in Wilhelmshöhe, which attracts visitors with fantastic nature, an impressive castle and weekly water displays.
