Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Hesse, Germany your home away from home

Hesse, or Hessen, is a state in western central Germany covering 21,000 km ². The capital of the region is Wiesbaden but perhaps the best-known city is Frankfurt. Beyond the cities, Hesse has an upland area of dense forests and the Riesling wine-producing region in the Rheingau region. Other areas are known for their car-production, including Opel in Rüsselsheim and VW near Kassel. A holiday rental in Hesse makes a delightful base for exploring this lovely region.

Things to Do in Hesse

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. The Christmas Shop is well-known at Rothenburg Ob der Tauber where you can pick up seasonal decorations throughout the year.

Places to Visit in Hesse

Frankfurt is a city with a real international feel. It has the tallest buildings, the largest airport and the most banks of any city in continental Europe. It also has the “mile of museums” in Europe, with 14 on the south bank of the Main. The Marktplatz, the City Hall and the Emperor Cathedral are just some of the highlights to see on a tour of the Altstadt or Old Town. Visit the Palm Garden or enjoy a day at Frankfurt Zoo. A visit to the wine region is an interesting day out and an integral part of enjoying the Hesse region. See the vines and follow the wine making process before tasting some of the region’s world-famous Riesling wines. The well-known route from Frankfurt to Munich is known as the Romantic Road and offers spectacular Bavarian scenery. One of the highlights is the lovely medieval town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Its quaint half timbered architecture, castle and clock tower add to the charm of this delightful Imperial Free City.

Weather in Hesse

Hesse has hot summers and cold winters, like much of Germany. In July and August, daytime highs average 24°C (75°F) but from December through February temperatures struggle to remain above freezing. The area has 4-5cm of rainfall every month which falls as snow in winter.

Beautiful Apartment with open view and quiet area

5 of 5
I was made to feel very welcome but then left to my own devices, which was perfect. The apartment has a very well equipped kitchen, amazing lighting options and was spotlessly clean. Comfy bed, good shower, lovely living space. It is reasonably close to main roads, and easy to drive around. Beautiful walks out the back of the street. Really good price compared with other options in the area.
