Darmstadt, Germany is a quirky city just outside of Frankfort, located in the state of Hesse. What makes Darmstadt a bit wacky, you may wonder Well, it’s primarily the crazy-cool architecture like that of the Waldspirale. Translated into English, Waldspirale means spiral forest, which is quite literally what it is. Though Waldspirale is a residential building, it features a colourful design across the edifice and trees that line the spiral shape of the complex. It’s hard to even put into words so you may have to see for yourself on your next trip to Darmstadt. Of course, this is just one attraction of the city, there is so much more to see. Keep reading for the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Darmstadt, Germany!
