  • Looking down over Luisenplatz, the biggest and busiest square in the centre of Darmstadt, is the Ludwigs Monument, affectionately known to the locals as „Langer Ludwig“ in memory of Grand Duke Ludwig the first. The main building on the north side of the square, the Kollegiengebäude, was built in the eighteenth century and today houses the regional council. A further statue in the square pays tribute to Justus von Liebig, who was born in Darmstadt in 1803.



    From April to October, the Lange Ludwig is open for visitors every 1st Saturday of the month. 172 steps lead to the viewing platform at 30 m height and in fine weather you can enjoy a great view over the city.
