Home to numerous public and private scientific and research institutions, Darmstadt is one of only 4 cities carrying the official title “City of Science”. Since 1967, space missions have been designed and controlled in the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) in Darmstadt. The worldwide network of ESA ground stations is also operated from here in order to maintain contact with the missions. A guided tour will lead through the premises of the Satellite Control Centre, the main control room and various satellite models.

Darmstadt is the birthplace of numerous inventions which have changed our daily life. International operating companies and research institutions have their headquarters here. An audio guide on the „Science Route 4“ informs about the particularities of the various institutions and companies, from the particle accelerator to multimedia developments, aviation and space travel.
