Life and Living in Kassel and the Region

Wonderful living

In the city and the region, urban metropolitan flair, charming small towns, idyllic villages lie closely together. Here building land, farmsteads, houses, flats and apartments offer a plentiful choice for singles, couples and families.

You can find attractive quarters for all preferences in Kassel as well as in the neighbouring 'Volkswagencity' Baunatal. All around there are the residential areas of the beautiful communities of Niestetal, Kaufungerwald, Söhrewald, nature park Habichtswald and the Reinhardswald, which are perfectly connected via bus, tram and RegioTram.

Kassels districts

The 23 districts of Kassel stand for an attractive living environment in all directions. In the West, the sophisticated district Bad Wilhelmshöhe fluently merges into Europe's biggest hillside park. In the North, there are the quarters Kirchditmold, Harleshausen and Philippinenhof-Warteberg, embedded in meadows and fields, which are especially popular with families. You can live very central in the art nouveau of the district Vorderer Westen, in the Südstadt, which is bordering the spacious Karlsaue or directly along the river in the modern architecture of the Unterneustadt. In the East, Bettenhausen with its rural flair nestles along the renaturized small river Losse. In the South, agricultural and vast residential areas around the historical farming and artisan village characterize Kassel's biggest district Niederzwehren. Almost everywhere, wonderful properties are waiting to be discovered - to rent or own, via the free market or via housing companies.

Attractive Residential Areas

In the Matter of Health

Doctors, clinics and medical care

Kassel and the region are oriented to the health from head to foot. A comprehensive number of doctors, pharmacies, rehabilitation centres and care facilities is available. The specializations range from general medicine, to all kinds of specialized clinics as well as to a centre of emergency and intensive medicine. The biggest municipal hospital of maximum treatment in Hesse and competence centre for the medical care of the region is the Klinikum Kassel with 32 specialized clinics and institutes. It is run by Gesundheit Nordhessen Holding AG, a regional healthcare group, which comprises the whole range of inpatient and outpatient medical care with nearly all services concerning medicine and care. Further large providers are the 'Deutsche Rote Kreuz', church hospitals as well as the Wicker-clinics. Thousands upon thousands of doctors, nurses and caregivers are committed to the health of their patients. Here, the orientation towards conventional medicine, scientific and natural medicine at the same time reflects the holistic attitude of our local healthcare.
