The Königsplatz is a round place in the center of Kassel. It separates the Upper from the Lower King's Road and is centrally crossed by the tram that runs along these roads. In total, six streets open onto Königsplatz. Today it is part of the pedestrian zone in the city center.
The square was created in 1767 as part of the redesign of the city according to plans by Simon Louis du Rys. He got his name after the landgrave Frederick I (1676-1751), who had also been king of Sweden.
