Welcome to Darmstadt

City of Science or Centre of Culture? Darmstadt is both. Like almost no other city, it combines an appreciation of the arts with a passion for science and innovation. Darmstadt still has the charm of a royal capital – at the same time it is a modern city, a laboratory for cultural as well as scientific experiments.

 

The journey started with the forming on the Mathildenhöhe of the Artists' Colony, a group of artists whose exhibitions enjoyed worldwide recognition and who created a document of modern forms of construction and housing - starting point for modern industrial design.    

 

Before the title “City of Science” was bestowed on Darmstadt in 1997, the city was recognised as “City of the Arts”. In fact, both sides go hand-in-hand, recognising that the combination of tradition and innovation is the “Darmstadt Way” to discover new things – here and throughout the world.  

See you in Darmstadt!

A hike over the 7-Hügel-Steig or a bike tour on the 60 km bike route "Around Darmstadt" - there are many ways to discover the city. And this year, too, there are many cultural highlights such as exhibitions, anniversaries and other exciting concepts.

 

Whether for a shopping spree, meeting friends, visiting a museum or one of the many leisure activities - see you in Darmstadt!
