|Darmstadt is a city in the
Bundesland (federal state) of Hesse in Germany, located in the southern
part of the Rhine Main Area. The city of Darmstadt was founded by
the Counts of Katzenelnbogen in 1330, though settlement in the area is
known to have been present as early as the late 11th century. However,
the sandy soils in the Darmstadt area, ill-suited for agriculture in times
before industrial fertilisation, prevented any larger settlement from developing,
until the city became the seat of the Landgraves of Hessen-Darmstadt in
the 16th century. As the administrative centre of an increasingly
prosperous duchy, the city gained in prominence during the following centuries.
In the 20th century, industry (especially chemicals) as well as large science
and electronics (later information technology) sectors became increasingly
important, and are still a major part of the city's economy. Darmstadt
also has a large tertiary education sector, with three major universities
and numerous associated institutions.
Darmstadt is one of few cities (as
opposed to smaller towns) in Germany which does not lie close to a river,
lake or coast. It can also boast being the sunniest city in the state of
Hesse. The chemical element Darmstadtium (atomic number 110) is named after
it, having been synthetisized in GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research

|Dresden is the capital city
of the Free State of Saxony in Germany. It is situated in a valley on the
River Elbe. The Dresden conurbation is part of the Saxon Triangle metropolitan
area. Dresden has a long history as the capital and royal residence
for the Electors and Kings of Saxony, who for centuries furnished the city
with cultural and artistic splendour. The city was completely destroyed
by the controversial Allied aerial bombing towards the end of World War
II. The impact of the bombing and 40 years of urban development during
the East German socialist era have considerably changed the face of the
city. Some restoration work has helped to reconstruct parts of historic
inner city, including the Katholische Hofkirche, the Semperoper and the
Dresdner Frauenkirche. Since the German reunification in 1990, Dresden
has re-emerged as a cultural, educational, political and economic centre
The Elbe Valley of Dresden was for
five years an internationally recognised site of cultural significance
by the UNESCO World Heritage Committee. After being placed on the list
of endangered World Heritage Sites in 2006, the city had its status as
world heritage site formally removed in June 2009, for the wilful breach
of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, through the construction of a
highway bridge across the valley within 2 km of the historic centre. It
thereby became the first ever place in Europe to lose this status, and
the second ever in the world
