The main focus of the HERMES experiment at DESY was the detailed investigation of the spin structure of the nucleon, mainly its decomposition into contributions from quarks and gluon spins and their orbital angular momenta. Many exciting, unexpected results have been obtained by measuring semi-inclusive and exclusive processes in deep-inelastic scattering. Over recent years, pioneering measurements of observables carrying information about the three-dimensional nucleon structure were performed. We will present an overview about recent results from HERMES, relate them with our current understanding of the spin and three-dimensional structure of the nucleon, and discuss their relevance for other physics fields.
