The landmark of Darmstadt – the Hochzeitsturm (Wedding Tower)
With a height of 48 m, the Hochzeitsturm is the landmark of Darmstadt. It is also located on the Mathildenhöhe and nicknamed as the Fünffingerturm (Five Finger Tower), based on its architectural design. Built in 1905 it commemorates the marriage of the Grand Duke with the Grand Duchess Eleonore. It has a viewing platform on the seventh floor that you can reach either by climbing the 196 steps on foot, or by an elevator. From there you have a wonderful panoramic view of Darmstadt.
