Hesse is a state of Germany with an area of 21,110 km² and just over six million inhabitants. The capital city of Hesse is Wiesbaden. The largest city is nearby Frankfurt am Main. Hesse has the largest proportion of the Rhine Main Area. The main rivers in the northern part of Hesse are Fulda and Lahn. It is a hilly countryside, the main mountain chains being the Rhön, the Westerwald, the Taunus and the Spessart. Most inhabitants live in the southernmost part of Hesse between the rivers Main and Rhine. The latter borders Hesse on the southwest without running through the state. The mountain chain between the Main and the Rhine is called the Odenwald.
