Thanks for the information. I will definitely go there. Is there a street car, bus or metro to get there from central Darmsatdt ?

The Straßenbahn goes directly from Darmstadt - Luisenplatz. You have to take Nr. 6, 7, or 8 in the direction to Alsbach and get out in Jugenheim, Ludwigstraße. From Ludwigstraße it is quite a walk up to Schloss Heiligenberg, approximitly 20 min - 30 Min, depending in what shape your in :-).


Important! Please let us know some time in advance if you are planing a tour. But as I mentioned earlier on, the Schloss-Park is open to the public. You just walk up there (or drive) and have a walk around. As soon as the new website of the Fondation is finished and online, i will post it for more information.

Thanks for the info VN. I have grown used to walking travelling in Germany. I walked all the way up to the Veste in Coburg.

A present from Nicholas II to the Hessian family:
The swimming pool at Wolfsgarten dates back to 1911 - a similar pool is said to be at Tsarskoe Selo!
People were perfectly hidden from curious eyes :)

Thank you Gabriella for saving me the time of looking for the dates this year.  I have been to Wolfsgarten several times as I used to live in Langen.  Kind regards, JGP
