Ludwigshöhe©Ulrich Mathias

The Ludwigshöhe, also called Bessunger Hausberg, is a popular excursion destination in the south of Darmstadt.

Discovered as a destination at the beginning of the 19th century, the flow of visitors increased from year to year. After the construction of a small wooden temple, a massive inn was built in 1838, which was constantly rebuilt and expanded over the years. The excursion destination was crowned by the construction of a 27.5 m high lookout tower, the Ludwigsturm
