Auf dem Weg zum Welterbe
Science city or centre of culture? Darmstadt is both. Like few other places, Darmstadt combines research, intellectualism, innovative spirit and a sense of art. It exudes the charm and atmosphere of a royal residence while at the same time being a bustling modern city and a place of cultural experimentation that is situated in the heart of an international centre of research. Darmstadt’s cultural history took its biggest step with the building of the city’s famous Artists’ Colony on Mathildenhöhe. Over the years, the exhibitions held here gained worldwide renown. The “Darmstadt Way” stands for the discovery of the new, both here and around the world.
