It was fun walking around the truly unique neighborhood built by various architects. We went to the museum first to get a background on the competition for building the homes. It's good that this unique area was not torn down as was threathened at one point. We enjoyed doing something a little different as part of our trip to Stuttgart.

Great area to visit if you are an architect or an architecture lover. Just walk around the houses and buildings, it's so interesting to see that, even though they were built so long ago, they look so contemporary and vivid, there are actually people that live there. For architects or architecture students from around the world it is gratifying to... More

If you are not interesting in architecture, it would be a bit strange museum for you. But it is really nice view from the top floor :) and actually house is pretty nice

A Cultural Heritage! All the famous Bauhaus architects left their mark. It's free to walk around and there is a Corbussier-biuilding with original furniture and a museum. Moderate entrance fee.

No point going there if you have no interest in architecture and/or have no prior knowledge of these buildings and their architects. Seriously, if you're an architecture student and do not know what the Weissenhofsiedlung is, start researching. Ironically, I didn't enjoy the one museum that was accessible (Le Corbusier's) so much as I did enjoy the ones I couldn't... More

A walk through Bauhaus architectural history. There are info signs posted everywhere - so a self-guided walk is ok (the museum was closed. Being on a steep hill side - there are great views of Stuttgart as well.

Architecture is not normally a subject which interests me, but my companion had this on a list and I must say the museum was very interesting. For once, the english translation to the plentiful information notices was excellent, and actually made me able to appreciate the whole experience far more. A walk around the project, again with well translated information... More

Weissenhofsiedlung is unique, because it is architecture of the 20s still surprising you, which ideas these architects had nearly 100 years ago. Additionally it is not a museum, it is a part of the town where people live nad work.

It was interesting to see the remaining homes and the fact that people are living in them. The museum was just all right. It was heavy on information and light on presentation. The best part of the museum was the view from the roof terrace.

A couple of houses built in 1927 by several famous architect of that time: Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, J.J.P. Oud and others. The Corbusier house can be visited, and has a small exhibition.
