There was hardly a visitor to Kassel from the 18th century onwards who missed out on the opportunity to visit the Wilhemshöhe park, which was once far away from the town. The town inhabitants enjoyed showing the park and the statue of Hercules to their guests and the Grimm brothers were no exception, as evidenced, e.g. in the diary entries of 1818 made by Maria Anna (“Jenny“) von Droste-Hülshoff, a collector of fairy tales and the elder sister of Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, the famous poet. Wilhelm Grimm showed Wilhemshöhe to Maria Anna along with her sister, her father and Caroline von Haxthausen, a relative from Schloss Bökendorf.
