A visit is especially worthwhile if there is an interest in astronomy. In the Karlsaue there is the planet path. In the orangery there is a wonderful collection of historical astronomical measuring and observation devices. There is a very nice planetarium on the upper floor. But the orangery is also simply beautiful from the outside.

The orangery in Kassel was built below or around 400 m south of the former city palace near the western Fuldaufer under Landgrave Karl between 1703 and 1711. Since then it has formed the northern beginning of the Karlsaue.
Today the Astronomical-Physical Cabinet and the planetarium are located there.

When it was founded by Landgrave Carl in 1703, today's palace was actually just the Orangery, which belonged to the City Palace, 400 m away. In the orangery there is a planterarium and the astronomical-physical cabinet - a museum that is currently closed (as of July 2022). There is also a small museum shop and the ticket office for the marble bath in this building.
