Berlin, which is the national capital, is situated 190 miles (306 kilometers) northeast of Guxhagen, while Frankfurt is 85 miles (137 kilometers) to the southwest.
While it may be a temptation to just kick back and relax when visiting Guxhagen, keep in mind that Hessen's treasure-trove of natural and man-made attractions are never more than a day trip away. Take a trip to the Waldeck Golf Club and Uferpromenade Waldeck in Waldeck, approximately 18 miles (29 kilometers) to the east of Guxhagen.
Kassel is 7 miles (11 kilometers) from Guxhagen. This center offers a diverse range of things to see, such as Kassel Congress Center, Messe Kassel Exhibition Centre and Wilhelmshoehe Park. Karlsaue Park, University of Kassel and Museum for Sepulkralkultur are just a few of the many other visitor attractions on offer here.
If you want to stay indoors, it's hard to go past Hessen's excellent history museums, art museums and theaters. These are great places to to learn about the region's rich cultural tapestry and perhaps find a special memento. Visitors seeking out places of quiet contemplation, will love the chance to visit the region's many churches.
Take a big breath and feel your worries drift away as you try out some of the area's more relaxing activities such as cycling and picnicking.
As the sun sets on your adventures, spend what's left of your euros on that last souvenir and bid a fond Tschüss (farewell) to the people you've got to know and the landscapes you've seen.
