"Platanenhain - and boule in summer" Top 5 Page for this destination Mathildenhoehe Tip by Trekki
Mathildenhoehe, Darmstadt: 34 reviews and 98 photos
This grove was built to the order of Princess Mathilde Caroline of Bavaria, wife of Duke Ludwig III of Hesse, in 1833, as part of an English landscape garden. Apart from the very symmetrical arrangement of the planes the grove is full of sculptures, made by artist Bernhard Hoetger. He modelled them in 1914 according to the concept of an eternal life cycle, life and birth, spring and summer.
As soon as temperatures increase, locals flock here and play boule.
Mathildenhöhe is located northeast of Darmstadt?s city centre.
By car: drive direction Dieburg (which is east of Darmstadt) and follow the brown signs to ?Mathildenhöhe?. But be aware that parking up there can be a nightmare.
By public transport: at Luisenplatz, take bus ?F? and exit at Mathildenhöhe.
