Living in Kassel

Kassel is known by its nickname as ‘the Documenta city’, thanks to its art exhibitions which are widely regarded. The town is positioned on the Fulda River and has many fascinating sights and architectural buildings to explore, not only for the many tourists who visit the area each year, but also for expats living in Kassel. Amongst its most visited sites are the baroque Karlsaue Park and the Wilhelmhöhe Castle which features a striking statue of Hercules. The town is also known as being the home of the Brothers Grimm for a number of years, which is celebrated at the Brothers Grimm Museum. Other popular cultural attractions include the Louis Spohr Museum and the Museum of Natural History. Kassel also boasts a number of sports teams, including the Hessen Kassel football team and a strong ice hockey scene.

Moving to Kassel

The cost of living in Kassel is fairly low, which great news for expatriates moving to Kassel. The housing is affordable and the town is easy to navigate thanks to a large tram network and strong rail connections to the rest of German, as well as an airport. The University of Kassel is a relatively new institution (founded in 1971) which provides specialist learning in a number of disciplines. Together with many schools, this is ideal for expats moving to Kassel with families. Kassel is generally considered to be a safe area to live, with welcoming and friendly residents. Kassel benefits from a mostly mild climate, with warm summers and colder winters, much like the rest of central Europe. Expatriates moving to Kassel will be able to benefit from joining InterNations’ growing expat community which features members from over 190 nationalities across the world. On our platform with its various communication channels such as discussion groups and forums, expats moving to Kassel can try and look for other expatriates in Kassel who are able to provide advice on moving and living in Kassel, as well as Germany in general.

Working in Kassel

There are a number of industries present in the area which makes it a great place for expats working in Kassel. There are a number of firms in and around the city which specialize in industries such as technology and environmental technology. There are also opportunities to work in other areas such as finance and law, as well as in the educational sector thanks to its growing university. Those working in Kassel will find a great public transport network within the city which makes it possible, and easy, to commute to other areas if needed. Joining InterNations can furthermore help expats working in Kassel to find out key information about working in the area as well as about general life in Kassel, or Germany, and other useful advice. It’s an opportunity to connect with a number of likeminded people and could help you to settle in more easily.
