Welcome to the Spessart Region

Spessart is home of the famous fairytale collectors Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. The Grimm brothers were born in Hanau, at the gateway to the Spessart. In Steinau, in the west of the low mountain range, they grew up. Here you can experience stories about mysterious forests and medieval villages. But the region does not only offer something for fairytale lovers. Further cultural highlights, premium hiking trails, mountain bike trails, brine spas and other health and wellness offers guarantee relaxing escape from everyday life.
