Discover Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt with Future History

When Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig invited seven young artists of the Art Nouveau movement to Mathildenhöhe in 1899, this marked the birth of the Darmstadt Artists' Colony, which existed until 1914. In four large exhibitions, the artists showed their idea of a modern, artistically designed living environment. Thus, on the "Musenhügel" (Hill of the Muses) grew a document of the departure for modern forms of building and living - the starting point for modern industrial design. The Gesamtkunsthwerk Mathildenhöhe.
