Darmstadt Travel Guide: 204 reviews and 668 photos

Some of my friends told me since a long time about Darmstadt. They went there to visit expositions, to visit Mathildenhoehe, to study there .... And I also heard, that Darmstadt is not a nice place at all, that Darmstadt is a dumb place, that there are much more beautiful places than just Darmstadt. I was curious. What is Darmstadt like? So I went there and I was completely overwhelmed: Living in Darmstadt is like living in a museum!

Art Nouveau

If you plan to visit Darmstadt and you like to take fotos, be sure to have enough time. I was there for an afternoon. That is not at all enough! Just for walking around Mathildenhoehe, visit a museum, have a coffee, you need this time. Darmstadt is the capital of the Art Nouveau! And there are so many beautiful things to watch at or to take pics of.

Excellent guide

Be sure to have a guide! I was so lucky, because all the Nobbys ( Norbaert ) wanted to walk with me through their favourite places! But The absolute Darmstadt expert is my dear friend Ingrid ( Trekki ) ! Thanks a lot to you for showing me your "beloved" Darmstadt
