Darmstadt, Germany - 10th February 2008
Petra told us, that there is a house created by Friedensreich Hundertwasser in Darmstadt. We still had some time, so we drove there and found this house. I just can tell you, that it is very very beautiful and interesting.
It is called "Waldspirale", what means something like wood spiral. It was created between 1998 and 2000 and seems to be like a fairy-tale castle. No window is like the other.
It has space for 105 appartments.
There are lime trees, beeches and maple trees on top of the roof. A playground and a similated river are part of the garden in the inner part of the spiral. In the tower on the southeast corner is a restaurant with cocktailbar and in the opposite tower a café.
Sadly Hundertwasser died in February 2000 short before the building was completed.
