Linguists and collectors of fairytales. The Brothers Grimm.

The Brothers Grimm are arguably the most famous figures to have ever come from Hessen. They are best known for their Children's and Household Tales, the first edition of which was published in 1812 and is listed on UNESCO's Memory of the World Register. The siblings are widely regarded as the founders of German language studies and published a dictionary of German. Jacob was even a member of the first German parliament. May 2015 sees the opening of GRIMMWELT, a new major attraction for Kassel. The Brothers Grimm House in Steinau is also well worth a visit.
