Darmstadt Travel Guide: 204 reviews and 668 photos

In the few daylight hours left

My time in Darmstadt was far too short we came here to visit a friend, Ingrid (VT Member Trekki) and explore other out of the loop places in the south west region. Ingrid had told me before about 'ugly darmstadt' but it holds so many gems it soon becomes a crown. Plans do not always work out when the Weather God's intervene and I missed some treasures but the little pages which will follow on from this arty city will reveal some more hidden gems in Germany = Thank you Ingrid you are a great guide!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:If you see nothing else = see the Russian Chapel
  • Cons:I wasn't here long enough to notice any = maybe there are none!!
  • In a nutshell:Darmstadt has a lot of hidden gems awaiting discovery

    The Russian church St. Maria Magdalena is indeed charming. I love the colours and detailing.

    They might call Darmstadt ugly, but you're right, there are some worthwhile gems there. BTW, thanks for checking out my Austria page.

    Lovely page! I really enjoyed reading all the description, and seeing the photos, especially about the Russian chapel. It looked magnificent!

    The Wedding Tower is an amazing site for a wedding ceremony. The architecture on your Darmstadt page are what I like most. Thanks for sharing.
