From the Darmstadt Marktplatz there is little sign that the Schlossmuseum is open. The scaffolding suggests that the whole building is being worked on. We only realised when we visited the Porcelain Museum that the Schlossmuseum was in fact open but the entrance was at...More

Considering the mediocrity of the palace, the tour was really far too long at nearly 90 minutes (and it is entirely in German). If you enjoy taking pictures, forget it. It is not allowed. (Seriously? Why?). You'll just spend forever in each room hearing a...More

This castle was built in several periods and it bears today also the mark of different architectural styles. You can visit some of the former state rooms. A very good collection of the past rulers.

Excellent little museum occupying part of the original Residenz, containing artefacts and artworks which once belonged to the Hessen-Darmstadt family branch. Of note XVIII century portraits and mementos from the Tzar and Tzarina's visit in the XX century. Guided tour in German
