The charming half-timbered and Sleeping Beauty town of Hofgeismar is located in the middle of the Reinhardswald Nature Park. The contrasting landscape of the fairytale land of Reinhardswald invites you to numerous sightseeing tours. Outstanding is the Sleeping Beauty Castle Sababurg, the fairy tale castle of the Brothers Grimm, and the Rapunzel Castle Trendelburg with its romantic atmosphere. The primeval forest Sababurg, as the oldest nature reserve in Hessen with beech trees, alders and old oaks, some over 800 years old, and the zoo Sababurg, as the oldest zoological facility in Europe, are particularly eventful. On well-marked cycling and hiking trails in the Reinhardswald and in the Diemel valley, you can embark on further fairytale journeys of discovery.
