There is a beautiful Rumpenheimpalace complex on the banks of the Main, surrounded by a picturesque park. Theseare the buildings of the XVII century, restored in the second half of the XXcentury. Once it was the residence of the Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel. It hosted theGreek princes and Danish kings, the Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph and theRussian Tsar Alexander III.
Unfortunately, the Rumpenheim Castle was damaged during World War II andthe rooms with expensive furniture and décor were looted. In 1965, the Hesse-Kasselfamily sold the Rumpenheim Castle to the city authorities, who have decided torestore it. The works lasted more than 30 years, and in 2002 the buildingacquired its former appearance. Now luxury apartments are located in the rightand the left wing of the castle. In summer, the park regularly hosts classicalmusic concerts, a Medieval Festival and other events.
