Georg Christoph Lichtenberg-Haus
Each year TU Darmstadt welcomes a large number of international visiting academics, who come to study and teach at the university. Our guests from across the globe find a “home away from home” in one of our 56 guest apartments in our two guest houses. The guest houses are available exclusively to international doctoral candidates, postdocs, visiting reseachers and guest professors.
Built in 1898 and restored in Art Noveau style in 1910, the house is an example of this unique architectural style that has become a landmark in Darmstadt, which has helped the city gain international prominence.
