In the museums who are part of the “Museumslandschaft Hessen”, the entrance for people who are younger than 18 years is free. This includes for example the Schloss Wilhelmshöhe, Löwenburg and the Orangerie. For people who receive government benefits the entrance fee is slightly reduced. For some of the other museums in Kassel, for example the museum for sepulchral culture and the municipal museum, it is possible to get significantly reduced tickets. For example, in the natural science museum, the cut entrance fee is 1€. In the museum Fridericianum, the entrance is free every Wednesday.

Pupils, students and trainees under 30 years as well as unemployed and disabled persons will receive a cut of 40% off the ticket. If remaining tickets at the box office are available after 15 minutes before the show, pupils and students can buy them for 10 € for the opera and concerts and for 7 € for a play.

The “Stellwerk” is an exhibition room of the academy of arts Kassel, which is organised by students. One goal of the “Stellwerk” is to present the art of young artists who have not yet or rarely had the chance to do so. The works of established artists are also presented. The opening hours depend on the exhibition and the entrance is for free.

There are different art and educational events. The focus of work is literature promotion, raising awareness of cultural and socio-political perspectives and promotion of the cultural life of the neighbourhood. There is also a non-commercial café with journals and magazines. The café and the gallery are often open all day. Normally, there is no entrance fee for events.

Every second monthly Tuesday at 7pm, musicians from different international genres present world music on stage in Stadtteilzentrum Wesertor.
