Memorable Darmstadt !!!

We were staying by Trier and all of a sudden I thought of places I have been and not the family. There is a town here i passed several days while in company time, and figure well why not show the family where I have been in Germany. So why not bring them to the trail over to visit Darmstadt! This was back in 2015 and I continue updating my posts and revising the old text, and new pictures! Hope you enjoy it as me relieving wonderful family time.

Darmstadt is the Land Hesse region of Germany not far from Frankfurt, which is where I landed on the airport and then moved by taxi to the city. This time we came by car all the way from Trier.

We left Trier on the B51 direction Saarburg,and then here took the 407 direction Hermeskell, where we change road number to 327 direction Morbach; here took 422 direction Idar Oberstein, and here took again 41 direction Gensingen.  At Gensingen, we took the expressway 61 to Grosheim and here took quick the 60 direction Mainz, connect with the 67 directioin Darmstadt where we came in on the 672, road 26 into the city at Rheinstrabe. Wonderful road warrior trip!

We park at the Luisencenter shopping center underground parking:

While in Darmstadt , we wall all over the city center, briefly visited the Schlossmuseum . The old theater look around as now houses the archives of the regional government. We saw the Orthodox Russian Church at Nikolaiweg 18. We stop by the Landesmuseum of natural history museum, and passed by the football stadium where I had attended games back in 2004!!

We took a ride to the new theater and the Church of Saint Louis just by it.  And course ,beautiful statues, columns and fountains in city center, as well as stopping by Bormuth bakery for a delicious German pastries, pretzels etc with softdrinks for a thirsty afternoon before heading back. My dear late wife Martine (she is last in line again! )really enjoy the pretzels, she ate and purchase for the rental house as well here! Nice memories of always.






Return we took the same 26 out into the 672 and took the 5 direction Frankfurt ,we took the 66 outside Frankfurt and cut across left or west to Wiesbaden on theh 66,and then just south of Wiesbaden took the 683 south to Gensingen to connect with the 41 to Bad Kreuznach and here continue until connect Nohfelden and the 62 and go north towards Hermeskell and the road 1,then 602 into Trier beltway on the B49 road.

The family was curious of these places I have been lol!!! Finally, ending our summer vacation back in Trier ,the next day was the trip back home to Bretagne, France. Another wonderful family vacation spent driving ,visiting many places in Germany.
