Art Nouveau in Darmstadt

Not only on the Mathildenhöhe you will find "Art Nouveau". Darmstadt's central station also displays numerous Art Nouveau elements, as does the Art Nouveau Bath - which already bears the term in its name. In the Hessische Landesmuseum Darmstadt, a whole department is dedicated to "Art Nouveau".
