Hesse (German: Hessen) is one of the states of the Federal Republic of Germany.
North Hesse or Kur-Hesse.
Natives of Hesse have a strong dialect of German, that can even be confusing to other Germans. They will understand and speak high ("standard") German as well. Since many also speak at least rudimentary English you shouldn't have any problems communicating with them.
International visitors will arrive mostly at Frankfurt international airport, the second largest airport in Europe and a major hub for the German carrier Lufthansa. From the airport, you can reach Frankfurt's central station with the subway in less than 15 minutes.
Hahn - often wrongly also called "Frankfurt Hahn" - is a former military airfield being used by "no frills" low budget airlines. Getting from Hahn to Frankfurt takes about 90 minutes.
Regular and high-speed Intercity trains connect Hesse to the rest of the nation as well as to various international destinations.
There are large regional networks of public transport:
A vegetarian option for the daring is Handkas mit Musik, literally: hand cheese with music, a traditional dish where dry, round, low-fat cheese is marinated in oil with caraway and raw onions (hence the "music").
Local specialties include wine from grapes, especially white grapes, and from apples (a kind of cider). This apple wine may be enjoyed straight (pur) or mixed (gespritzt). The latter versions distinguish between "sweet" and "sour", i.e. mixed with either some soda (orange lemonade) or sparkling mineral water.
Across the state and the country is a dense network of Youth Hostels (membership required).
