Darmstadt Off The Beaten Path: 14 reviews and 29 photos


It is a small town, but it is really worth a little stop, if you are interested in history. There is a building, called 'hall of the kings' (Koenigshalle). It was built in 774 and belongs since 1992 to the World Heritage List of the Unesco. The hall had two purposes: The first was to have a big room for the audiences of Karl der Große, a german emperor, the other was to have a representative entrance for the church, but the monastery doesn't exist any more. Just on the other site of the street, in the museum, there is a model of it.
