Here some impressions of Darmstadt’s Art Nouveau Mathildenhöhe, which was built between 1899 and 1914 as an artists’ colony. The ‘Hochzeitsturm’ (wedding tower) is part of the exhibition buildings, which were built in 1908. Zar Nikolaus II instructed the construction of the Russian Chapel, as he wanted to have a church when he and his family where visiting Darmstadt – the birthplace of his wife.
