Discover the beauty of Hesse on these inspirational tours: forests, castles and mediaeval towns - Limburg being one of them. Last but not least the water routes in Hesse provide countless kilometres of fresh views of the beauty of the central German landscape.
The culinary delights of Hesse will please the most discerning palate. Many of the typical regional dishes have become famous through the "Hesse à la carte" book and television series, which unveiled the secrets of specialities such as "Frankfurter Grie Soss" (herb sauce), "Waldhessen Lumpen und Flöh" (white cabbage seasoned with caraway and bacon), or Waldbrunner Pfännchen from the Westerwald. Visit one of the restaurants working in cooperation with Hesse à la carte and you are guaranteed the finest of typical regional food and drinks in local style. Cider and beer are generally the most popular drinks, but Hesse is also a wine region, home to Rheingauer Riesling and Bergstrasse specialities, so don't miss the opportunity to enjoy a warm welcome and wine tasting at the local vineyards.
