Bessunger Street 88D
Jazzinstitut Darmstadt houses Europe’s largest public jazz archive. In the Institut’s collection you will find books, periodicals, recordings, photos … and much more information about the history and current developments of jazz all over the world. Founded in October 1990, the Jazzinstitut is housed in a baroque hunting chalet called the Bessunger Kavaliershaus (built between 1709 and 1725) since 1997. The historical vaulted cellar underneath the Jazzinstitut has become a performance space for intimate concerts, among them the concert series “JazzTalk”.
