Mathildenhoehe : The russian chapel in Darmstadt



The entire area of "Matilda's Hill" consisting of the Russian Chapel, Plane Tree grove, Wedding Tower, Exhibition Building, Ernst Ludwig House, now Museum Kunstlerkolonie (Artists Colony Museum), and houses dating from 1901 by Joseph Maria Olbrich and one by Peter Behrens is of major historic significance, second only to Vienna in importance to the development of modern architecture. The houses are noted as examples of "Jugendstil" (youth work) but were strongly influenced by Art Nouveau and the a-historical trends of the Vienna Secessionists, of which Olbrich was a member. The museum contains furniture and objects from the period--don't miss it!




The nude scriptures means freedom and their connect with nature. This place will surprise you, the city itself is not really famous for either surroundings or historic buildings. The city offers guided tours with a different focus, depending on what you prefer.
