Suffering greatly during the destruction of the Second World War, Darmstadt has emerged in the last half-century as one of Germany’s leading centers for technology and innovation.
Start off your visit on the 14th (Wed): steep yourself in history at Messel Pit Fossil Site, admire the landmark architecture of Burg Frankenstein, then get engrossed in the history at Mathildenhoehe, and finally examine the collection at Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, read our Darmstadt trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are Frankfurt am Main Airport, Frankfurt-Hahn Airport and Karlsruhe Baden-Baden Airport. Expect a daytime high around 29°C in August, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
