Mathildenhöhe Artists´ Colony and Museum
Mathildenhoehe artist colony in Darmstadt

Darmstadt is famous for its Jugendstil (art nouveau) buildings. Many of the buildings survived the massive destruction of Darmstadt in 1944. Visit the Künstlerkolonie Mathildenhöhe, to see the most interesting ones.

The Museum is housed in the Ernst-Ludwig-Haus, the former atelier building of the Darmstadt Artists´ Colony. It provides a summary of the works of the artist members of Darmstadt´s Mathildenhöhe artists´ colony from 1899 to the beginning of the First World War. The focus is on items of everyday use, although other types of applied art are also represented. The collection pays tribute to the broad spectrum of Jugendstil forms.
