City of Science

Suffering greatly during the destruction of the Second World War, Darmstadt has emerged in the last half-century as one of Germany’s leading centers for technology and innovation. Though many of its historic art nouveau buildings, historic castles, and Baroque gardens survived the war, the city is most famous for its collection of higher education and world-class scientific institutions. In addition to hosting the European Space Operations Center, Darmstadt is home to leading research organizations in chemistry, physics, and more. While all of these technological marvels may be the face of the city, Darmstadt in fact boasts a vibrant cultural scene, including literature, the performing arts, and energetic nightlife. Under its highly-educated and scholarly exterior, Darmstadt undoubtedly represents a city that knows how to both work hard and play hard. Use our custom trip planner: Darmstadt and all its delights await.
