Discover the Mathildenhöhe with Future History

When Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig invited seven young artists of Art Nouveau to Mathildenhöhe in 1899, it was the birth of the Darmstadt Artists' Colony, which lasted until 1914. In four major exhibitions, the artists showed their idea of a modern, artistically designed living and living environment. Their buildings form the total artwork Mathildenhöhe, which today is one of the most important Art Nouveau ensembles in Germany.
