InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Darmstadt

Hello to all Americans in Darmstadt! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Darmstadt? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Darmstadt which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Darmstadt might not be as popular as Berlin, Munich, or even nearby Frankfurt as an expat destination, but the Hessian city has more to offer than you might think. The university city is a comparatively wealthy city known for its technical university and focus on research — Darmstadt is home to two European space operations and exploitation institutions as well as the Center for Heavy Ion Research — but also for its Jugendstil architecture, rich cultural heritage, and much more! With the comprehensive network of tram and bus lines, as well as connections to the wider Frankfurt suburban train system (S-Bahn), navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in nearby villages such as Erzhausen or Egelsbach, which are (thanks to their S-Bahn stations) only a short commute away from Darmstadt’s center.

Although Darmstadt has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Darmstadt, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
