Darmstadt Days of Art Nouveau

On Friday 19th May the "Days of Art Nouveau" are opened on Mathildenhöhe with a jazz concert. Highlight will be the Illuminaton Festival "A Night in Yellow" on Saturday night (20th), when candles, lampions and the illuminated buildings create an unique atmosphere and set you back to the festivals from around 1900. The family day on Sunday offers lots of activities for children and promises a relaxed final to the festival weekend.

The complete programme can be found as PDF, as a printed brochure in the Darmstadt Shop or all information also on the event page.
