Mathildenhoehe und Jugendstilkolonie, Darmstadt

(4.6/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Conceived around the turn of the 20th century, Mathildenhoehe und Jugendstilkolonie was founded as a colony of artists and architects with forward-looking ideas about the role of art and design in modern society. The group included Peter Behrens, Paul Bürck, Hans Christiansen, Ludwig Habich, Patriz Huber, and Joseph Maria Olbrich, all part of the Art Nouveau movement. The houses the artists lived in were constructed as exhibitions of their ideas and also functioned as homes, studios, and meeting places. The area also includes a wedding tower and a Russian Orthodox chapel. The museum contains a vast collection of art spanning the last few hundred years, along with many changing exhibits.

  • Visit the Mathildenhöhe is recommended if one is in the area. The Mathildenhöhe is the first ensemble of Art Nouveau in Germany. The Russian Chapel indicates that the Darmstadt-based Grand Duke Nruder of the Russian Empress was.

  • I've been coming for years, but never be traveling to a Darmstadt sightseeing has never been a chance. Our hotel can also be here even if it's this little town we visited some cold air traveling around. This challenge to the Russian church and garden is very beautiful, very colorful, full of colors, chirping. Already, the colorful layout state care wrap coil you immediately. If you have time, go in the Tower have the possibility of watching the city from there, take in the city to have fun Enjoy a date with this beautiful landscaping around the Temple in a way the immediate availability of the service, you need to see. Must see. This country's environmental design, cleanliness, care and respect people a total of them I love it. They are pretty good.

  • Worth a visit here, because you can stroll around the grounds and can see the beautiful houses and works of art in peace and quiet, there must be also the dog. We have not visited the museums, because the dog can't go in may, but there is a small cafe, as it should with pure and we enjoyed delicious coffee and cake, very nice operator. Also for petanque players paradise, which were well represented. In the summer determined even more beautiful than in February.
