    Fantastic view over Darmstadt to the bank towers to Mainhattan.
    Simply terrific.

    The Ludwigsklause is worthwhile - in addition to the view, which on some days reaches as far as Frankfurt.

    Breathtaking views over the Rhine-Main area and to strengthen there is a small restaurant.

    The Ludwigshöhe is a well-known place in the region. A kiosk and benches invite you to take a break. Probably the kiosk was only open on weekends, was often here at least during the week, it was always closed. Around the Ludwigshöhe various artists have immortalized themselves in the forest, so that the way here can already be an experience. If you want to go to the tower for 1 €. Keys are available at the kiosk.

    Walkable tower and in good weather a great panoramic view over large parts of Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse (FFM).

    Wonderful view over Darmstadt from above. You can vesper your own or order a hand cheese with music or a beef sausage in the fries house. A cool Abbelwoi and the world is fine!

    On this small hill you have a great view of Darmstadt and the Frankfurt skyline beyond. The tower is currently closed due to renovation work. But also from the terrace you have a clear view to the north. In addition to a playground, there are tons of benches and tables - food and drink can be bought at the kiosk.

    It is really the most impressive view of Darmstadt and far beyond. There are many benches to stay.

    Absolutely a nice destination after a good tour up here with the view. If the visibility is good you can see the planes landing in Frankfurt and you can see all the way to Ried. For a stop there is a beer garden with little things to eat and friendly staff.
