One of Hundertwasser's masterpieces. Beautiful example of his organic architecture, many details, not a single window is the same. It is a nice place to visit, looks like a house of dwarfs or fairies from a children's book, but bear in mind, that it is...More

I always take visitors to see the sights of Darmstadt and the Waldspirale is one of the must-see sights, even though it is just a 10 minute photo stop. It always invokes a bit of a wow effect. Unfortunately the cafe on top has closed.

It takes about 15-20 mins to walk here from the city centre (where the palace and museums are), but it's worth it if you're especially interested in quirky architecture! While most of the building is off limits to visitors, you can still enter the main...More

Fascinating architecture by Hundertwasser, just amazing what a block of flats can look like. It "spirals" in a C-shape from 2 stories high to about 10 stories at the other end. Shame the rooftop park is only open to residents.

Other than the Mathildenhöhe with its Russian Chapel and great Art Nouveau, this is Darmstadt's other great tourist attraction. This apartment house was designed by the Austrian artist, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, noted for his whimsical, colorful, and wavy paintings of fantasy city- and landscapes. It is...More

What an amazing place! It was much bigger than I thought yet quite accessible. I walked the whole way around it, then through it - just a pity I couldn't get inside it. What a privilege it must be to live there.

The Waldspirale is a special example of the work of the architect Hundertwasser and it really is worth seeing in the flesh! I was staring at it for about half an hour! There is also an excellent café/bar on the top floor. As it is...More

This is a very nice building and I think that the people living there are very proud. It is indeed a marvelous construction.

for whatever reasons you may not want to live there, but certainly a visit to the house designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser is absolutely worth it. There is not much one needs to say about it. Even though it is outside of the normal tourist attractions,...More
