I will be around for sure :) However, here are some recommendations what to
do in Darmstadt.

Proposal for Saturday: Walk through the park "Schlossgarten" and visit the
palace. The palace is next to the city center (most shops should have open
at least until 8pm on Saturday). Then go to our multidisciplinary
"Landesmuseum" (entrancy fee 6 Euro). It is a beautiful building with a huge
collection and exhibitions from ancient Egypt to very modern art.

1. Herrngarten
Address: Schlossgartenstrasse, 64289 Darmstadt

2. Schloss (with another museum)
Address: Marktplatz 15, 64283 Darmstadt, Deutschland

3. City center and tourist information
Address: Luisenplatz 5, 64283 Darmstadt

4. Landesmuseum
Address: Friedensplatz 1, 64283 Darmstadt

Proposal for Sunday: Do a long walk from the Hotel to "Mathildenhöhe", visit
the Museum "Künstlerkolonie" (5 Euro entrance fee), pass the "Rosenhöhe" and
finally go to the farm "Oberfeld" (where you can have coffee, cake, cookies
and some small things to eat):

Additional sights:

your swim suits...)

2. residential building complex "Waldspirale" designed by the Austrian
artist Hundertwasser

food, mainly beer:)

3. Habibi, Landwehrstrasse 13, 64293 Darmstadt (vegetarian and vegan food,
middle east style)
