Darmstadt, Germany : 30th April, 2018

Once the seat of the rulers of the independent German Grand Duchy of Hessen, Darmstadt has now transformed itself into the unified country's "City of Science". It has an extensive tramway system characterised by a central interchange at Luisenplatz from where lines run in three directions and tracks encircle a 33-meter high column topped off by a statue of Grand Duke Ludwig I, which was erected in 1844. One very long line takes trams well beyond the city boundaries, to Alsbach in the south and featuring a limited-stop service as far as Eberstadt. A further line crosses the city boundary to serve the community of Griesheim to the west. Both these were originally steam-hauled light railways. The branch to Kranichstein was opened in 2003 and an extension in Arheiligen beyond Loewenplatz in 2011. 

Above :  The bustling Luisenplatz, with the base of the Ludwig column. Fleet renewals have led to most trams now being low-floor, but some high-floor vehicles remain. Accessibility for these and capacity expansions for all are provided by low-floor trailers and Darmstadt is unusual for following this plan which was once common in Germany and elsewhere but is now a rarity.
