The park and the Hercules Monument is one of the landmarks of Kassel. The size of the park is already enormous, which also applies to the Hercules monument. Who wants to climb the Hercules monument from the park should be good on foot. Because ultimately it goes up stairs to the monument. There is of course a rest stop but it is already 220 meters high. Incidentally, the climbing of Hercules is chargeable (but this only applies to the Hercules itself) the way and everything else in the park is free.

Interesting round trip with refreshments: Parking at Hercules - over the Habichtswald- climb to the autumn cottage - high grass (restaurant) - way H3 to a dip in front of the Silberseegast site (or to get there) - Kassel climb over a hat to the parking lot. Extension possibility: From the Silberseegaststätte to Elfbuchen (hotel) - from there to the parking lot

The Hercules is also worth a visit in winter. In contrast to summer you have it for yourself shortly after sunrise. From the top a hiking trail leads to the castle Wilhelmshöhe, so that the whole mountain park can be explored. So do not follow the recommendations for the season of Wikipedia, but move as an adventurer in the entire Bergpark. My highlight for all strangers to hike the pearl of the city of Kassel.
