Hesse offers a host of scenic drives and tours, including the well-known Romantic Road. From your Hesse holiday home rental, explore the region, hiking, cycling and visiting the small villages on a personal voyage of discovery. A wine tasting tour is another great way to enjoy this region. Visit the magnificent castles in the area such as the lovely Schloss Braunfels, or the Schloss Auerbach in Bensheim. Shopping in the towns and cities of Hesse is a pleasure, with handcrafted items on sale at local gift shops, and beautiful European homeware and clothing in the larger stores.
