Group tour: Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt – UNESCO World Heritage

"We have to build a city, a wohle city."

These words by architect Joseph Maria Olbrich have gone down in history. The ensemble of buildings is architecturally, artistically and universally ground-breaking  and marks a turning point in architecture and art on the threshold of the 20th century. The tour of the UNESCO World Heritage "Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt" tells the story of the entire ensemble with the studio house, exhibition building and artist houses.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site Messel Pit with the visitor centre "Time and Messel Worlds" is the cradle of mammals and a window into the diversity of life on earth 48 million years ago. The trip to the Messel Pit can be combined with a visit to the Hessian State Museum Darmstadt: The permanent exhibition on the Messel pit covers the entire spectrum of Messel species in all its beauty and breadth.
