Nice place and must see when in Darmstadt. Wouldn't travel to Darmstadt only to see it, though. Nothing out of the ordinary, I'd say.

Another old German city full of wonderful surprises. Old town very picturesque with some amazing architectural gems. This is also the home of Merck, the chemical giant who are everywhere and sponsor the local football team too.

Very nice place, not only for culture- and art-interested people. Great view over Darmstadt and area from the Hochzeitsturm (Wedding tower). Very recommendable

Lovely site, celebrating the splendour or Jugendstil, Beautiful lay out, lovely architecture, interesting exhibitions. A bit difficult to get nearby with a car, limited parking place. Simple but adequate restauration with a terrace. Great information booklets available.

A former artists' colony with a wonderful museum and beautiful houses. The Wedding Tower is incredible, the Russian Orthodox Chrurch is stunning. Words can't do this place justice!!

I guess the dates for 2018 are not out yet, but you should be able to make plans according to the 2017 opening times around holidays. Prices will most likely be accordingly. Do visit the museum. It has all the Jugendstil... More
