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.

#HeinerHoliday

Heiner - that is the name for a "real Darmstädter". And the Heiner are proud of their city and all it has to offer.

Swimming in the Woog, a hike over the 7-Hügel-Steig, circling Darmstadt on the 60 km bike route "Around Darmstadt", ice cream parlor test in the city districts or finally exploring the exhibitions e.g. in the Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt or the Kunsthalle Darmstadt.
