Darmstadt is better than its reputation. The city was heavily bombed in WW2, and the rapid rebuilding afterwards shows. Yet this city has a really interesting sight to offer, the "Mathildenhöhe", an artists colony with a good art noveau-museum and a russian-orthodox chapel. Also worthwhile: The Rosenhöhe, a Botanical Garten with roughly 200 species of roses, flowering from June to September. The Rosenhöhe is in the immediate vicinity of the Mathildenhöhe - a public park with the statues of lions on huge columns, at the main entrance.
