Mathildenhoehe und Jugendstilkolonie, Darmstadt

4.7
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.

    Worth seeing. Extensive information about the Art Nouveau era and its protagonists. Worth seeing also the Russian Orthodox chapel on the Mathildenhöhe site.

    After visiting the rose heights only a short walk to the Mathildenhöhe. Here is the Russian Chapel and the wedding House. The climb to the lookout tower affords great views of Darmstadt and a vision in the Rhine Valley.
