  • Hochzeitsturm
  • The Hochzeitsturm (Wedding Tower), with its famous five fingers profile, was a wedding present from the city of Darmstadt to Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig and Princess Eleonore von Solms-Hohensolms-Lich in 1905. It is a viewing platform and, since 1993, also a branch of the Darmstadt registry office. It has become a symbol of the Darmstadt City of Science.


    The observation deck offers a panoramic view of the city.


    The Wedding Tower has an elevator, which can be reached via a few steps.
