  • The buildings of the "artists' colony" on the Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt are among the most important monuments of the Art Nouveau period! Mathildenhöhe is currently on the (hopefully successful) path to UNESCO World Heritage.

  • On the one hand, the Darmstadt Artists' Colony was a group of artists, mostly financed by patronage, who worked together between 1899 and 1914 – ideally with the same artistic views. On the other hand, the term also describes the place of work and the buildings erected by the artists on the Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt, in which they lived and worked. The "Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt" ensemble has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since July 24, 2021. It consists of two sections (main area, group of three houses) and also includes the Russian Chapel, which was built shortly before the artists' colony was founded.[1] The Mathildenhöhe is an elevation on the outskirts of Darmstadt's city center and was the gardens of the grand ducal court in the 19th century. This was redesigned in 1833 in the style of an English landscape park. The garden was named after Mathilde von Wittelsbach (of Bavaria). She was with Grand Duke Ludwig III. married.
