An essential part of the experience at Hotel Jagdschloss Kranichstein is its surroundings.
The Landgraves of Hessen-Darmstadt were very fond of this place for good reason. Although nowadays we tend to enjoy the forest and park, the picturesque Backhausteich and the old horse chestnut avenue while jogging and walking, rather than while hunting. The UNESCO World Heritage Site at Messel can be visited nearby – and a tour of the castle or a visit to the Bioversum at Kranichstein is most certainly worthwhile.
