Holiday Park; In the mountains; Among nature
Oberaula is located in the undulating landscape of the mountains of Kurhessisch. Here you can find many picturesque medieval villages as well as hiking and cycling trails and a complete state-approved climatic health resort. The capital of the region is Homberg (20 km), which lies at the gateway to the Knüllgebergte. As a recreation and vacation area it is a very popular mid-mountain range. With its 20 districts, Homberg looks back on a historic and eventful past. The cityscape is characterized by St. Marien Church, which is one of the largest Gothic hall churches in Hesse. In addition to activities at the holiday park, the area also offers a number of other possibilities. For example, a visit to the ancient settlement of Fritzlar (50 km) is certainly worthwhile. Surrounded by walls and towers, this medieval town is located on the steep banks of the Eder River. Crowned by a facade with twin towers, the city is a pearl of medieval towns in Hesse. You can also visit the beautiful castle of Wartburg which is situated on a hill 441 meters above the town of Eisenach (Thuringia). It makes for an interesting day trip. Other tips for trips: hike to the highest point in the province, the Eisenberg (5 km away); visit a beautiful medieval castle in Bad Hersfeld (20 km); or spend a relaxing day at the Silbersee in Kirchheim (20 minutes away by car). The large (spa) city of Kassel (65km) is definitely worth a visit. This vibrant city has much to offer, including museums, castles (castle of Wilhelmshöhe, Löwen-burg) and large parks with gardens and fountains, waterfalls and other water games. Kassel also offers numerous events such as Documenta, an international art exhibition held every 5 years since 1955. It is the most important exhibition of contemporary art in Western Europe. The woods around Oberaula have a number of mountain biking trails. With enough snow, there are limited opportunities for skiing at the nearby ski resorts of Knüllköpfchen in Neuenstein, with two lifts and two trails. You will also find “Wildpark Knüll” at a distance of 10 km. In short, you will not have time to be bored in Hesse!
