For a pleasant end to your evening, you can enjoy the food and drink at a range of restaurants and bars. Darmstadt is also the gateway to the beautiful Odenwald, which is popular with tourists, and to the picturesque Bergstraße region. The city and its environs thus offer numerous appealing options for sightseeing as well as cultural activities and leisure options.
