Kassel Off The Beaten Path: 8 reviews and 10 photos

by King_Golo

On top of Dörnberg hill, basically at the end of Alpenpfad, there is a sailplane airfield. While it is of course fun watching the planes rising silently into the air and then circulating around the hills after you've finished your walk, it might be more of an adventure trying it yourselves!
If you have a lot of time, there are regular classes. I'm not sure whether you can actually participate in a flight without having taken the course, but maybe the guys from the sailplane club can help you - see website below.

    Interesting tips about Kassel, i have two neighbours from there, one is returning to Kassel for a month next week, and the other is arriving next month for half a year, so i am learning a little about their town!

      Accompany them when they go there for the next time - Kassel is a nice place with some very interesting sights.
