You have to, Violetta! its a magical place and when passing the park gates you will immediately understand what made it so dear and special to its former inhabitants!

I`ve been to Darmstadt twice. there is something charming and attractive about it. i enjoy walking here, sitting in a cafe opposite the schloss. Spending time in Rosehohe... Walking in the schlossgarten or spending time in Kranichstein...I was in Germany in July but this time I was visiting the north of the country. But inexplicably i felt like going to damstadt all the time. So I`ll try to visit Wolfsgarten either in spring or in September net year.

Wolfgarten is the place that I would love to see. Only the gardens are available.  :(

Interesting.. they were both so young though; but it's possible.It would be interesting if they did, but unlikely.

I just came across a terrible story concerning Elisabeth's governess "Gina", Georgina Freiin von Rotsmann.

When Darmstadt was heavily destructed by bombs in September 1944 she still lived in a house in the city - and was rescued at the last moment. The poor lady was already 73 years old and suffered from severe pneumonia. Soldiers rescued her when the whole street was bombed and burnt down. She had to be showered with cool water again and again in order to protect her from the sparks.
She could hardly talk when 2 days after the air raid she was brought to Wolfsgarten - having mumbled "Prince Ludwig - Wolfsgarten" with her very last strenght.

Gina would live up to her 90th year and died in 1960
