The Landgasthof Hess is the ideal starting point for holiday and leisure activities. You’ll be surprised how much the region has to offer

The highly diverse mixed forests of the Knüll region are a hikers’ and ramblers’ paradise – which explains why our inn is affectionately known as “the Knüll’s first hiking hotel”. Nordic Walking fans can follow signposted trails starting on our doorstep, and there are a number of attractive cycle routes, too

 Lovers of arts and culture will also find plenty of worthwhile places to visit for a few hours or the whole day. The most famous local event is probably the Bad Hersfelder Festspiele, the annual theatre and music festival held in the nearby administrative seat and spa town of Bad Hersfeld. The breathtaking Stiftsruine - the ruins of the Romanesque collegiate church – are the backdrop for the world-class plays and musicals performed here every summer.
