Altstadtmuseum Hinkelsturm

Altstadtmuseum Hinkelsturm

The Hinkelsturm was originally a fortified tower and part of Darmstadt‘s city walls. Today, the tiny building houses a museum which documents, over three floors, life in Darmstadt‘s former old town (Altstadt). A detailed model of the houses and the very narrow streets (scale of 1:160) shows how crowded it was to live there and brings back to life the area which Ernst Elias Niebergall immortalised in his cult novel „Der Datterich“.

 

The Museum is open in the summer months from April until October. Starting in November, you can book individual tours at 06151 48135
