You can find information about festivals and events in the event calendar. And if you like shopping, have a look at Darmstadt Citymarketing e.V.

Darmstadt's culinary side

If a break is required, numerous streets and squares in the city centre invite you to linger and enjoy a little break. Thanks to the mild south Hessian climate, the open air season often starts in March and reaches far into October. It is therefore not surprising that around half of the seats are offeredare outdoor.

Cafés, restaurants and more.
