I took a walking tour which starts at the tourist information centre and this was one of the stops. The area is quite scenic, with a Russian chapel, the Art nouveau houses, wedding tower which has some lovely mosaics and a formal garden outside. It is a good place to wander up to and spend an hour or two.

Very relaxing place to visit and walk around. The park has nice view and the nearby is interesting to observe.

Really interesting but only three stars because there is nothing else ( good restaurant) to round out the tour. Plan an hour or so with nice weather to stroll through and enjoy the architecture.

incredible nice surrounding ...watch all the small things you can see there (in the Roof of the temples or on the Roof of the Museum)

in summetime for chilling in the City, mathildenhöhe is also very attractive....some People take their boule-balls and play and have a red wine just like those old frenchmen who occupied Darmstadt in earlier times.

fantastic is also that it is so close to the City, the woog (our city-bath) and the hospitals.

we really love to be there and spend some time.

Here you find an artist's colony of typical 'Art Deco' houses, you can see the 'Fünf-Finger-Turm' which was given to the residents of Darmstadt by Zar Nicholas when he married a Hessian princess. And you can visit a Russian Chapel that was built for the Zar and his family in order to make it possible for him to pray 'on Russian earth' when he stopped for his visits to Darmstadt.
I can't really fill in the following questions as I live nearby and can visit this place whenever I like to with whoever comes with me.
