Germany: Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe

Today I got five postcards from Germany.

One of them shows the Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe in Kassel. Kassel is the third largest city of Hesse and was once the capital of the Electorate of Hesse. Kassel houses the World's largest exhibition of contemporary art. The Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe was begun in 1689 by Landgrave Carl of Hesse-Kassel and depicts the ideals of absolutist Monarchy and the aesthetics of the Baroque and Romantic periods. Since 2013 is the Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
