Darmstadt

Science and research, art, culture and art nouveau.

Home to around 148,000 people...

Darmstadt is a town without skyscrapers, urban motorways and extensive office and administrative complexes. Darmstadt presents itself as a modern congress city with plenty of cultural flair. The science city is home both to one of Europe's most state-of-the-art theatres and to Hundertwasser architecture and outstanding examples of art nouveau.

 

 

Darmstadt's promotion of the arts gives the town its particular charme. This long tradition began with Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig and the foundation of the artists' colony at Mathildenhöhe in the early 20th Century. Darmstadt is considered a centre of art nouveau, on a par with Brussels, Paris, Vienna, Glasgow and Barcelona. Darmstadt represents science and research, art, culture and literature. In October each year, the Akademie für Sprache und Dichtung in Darmstadt awards the most important German literature prize - the Georg Büchner Prize. Every two years, the science town of Darmstadt also holds one of the key German competitions for young poets - the "Leonce and Lena" Prize. With retail space stretching to around 130,000 square metres, Darmstadt's centre offers a wide range of attractive shopping options. Over 450 shops eagerly await shoppers, who don't have far to walk: everything in the pedestrianized zone can be reached on foot in just a few minutes, giving you more time for the more exciting things in life ...
