Women’s History(s)

Darmstadt’s princesses and their times

Street signs, city squares and hospitals such as Wilhelminenstraße, Carolinenplatz and Alicehospital still bear their names. But who exactly were these princesses whose wide-ranging accomplishments are often overlooked, even today?

These exceptional women from four centuries in history and the fascinating times in which they lived – whether as regent, style icon or early advocate for women’s rights – are at the focus of this year’s exhibition marking the 100th anniversary of the Schlossmuseum.
