The place is in the old town hall. They brew the beer by themselves. And they are the best at it. Period.

Another reviewer has already said that sooner or later everyone in Darmstadt eats or drinks in the Ratskeller. This is surely true and most people go back again and again. It is located in the Marktplatz and so is extremely convenient. The trams and busses...More

A must visit when in Darmstadt. Set on the relatively pleasant Marktplatz in the original Town hall building, good local beer and traditional german food awaits you. Cosy yet spacious on the inside, and plenty of tables set up outside in the summer, it works...More
