The 31st Brothers Grimm Festival will be held in Hanau, the town where the brothers were born, from 15 May to 26 July. The amphitheatre at Philippsruhe Palace provides a fantastic venue for the event. Immerse yourself in the magical world of the Grimm fairytales – and don't miss your chance to watch the world premiere of the musical Puss in Boots.
The town of Hanau is also the starting point for the Hessen Railway Cycle Route. The route, which follows disused railway lines, takes in castles and palaces and beautiful nature parks with a rich variety of flora and fauna. This is an enjoyable ride for any cyclist and has been given a four-star rating by the German Cyclists' Federation.
