4.7/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • Great, partially residential ensemble. But, you should have images for comparison, what the houses looked like originally.

  • Just because Darmstadt was completely flat made WW in the 2nd, this architecture stands out particularly. Unique, beautiful and interesting in every respect.

  • This isn't a detour but a duty aesthetic to visit and admire this extraordinary place of beauty. We're speechless in front of this wonder of German Art Nouveau. To reserve a day is a minimum.
