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.

Weissenhofsiedlung are buildings designed by world-famous architects for a 1927 international architectural meeting. A number of the buildings still exist and one houses a small museum dealing with this topic.

not real clear where to park and what to see, but once you find the main museum it os really something unique, relevant and highly memorable. fascinating that these avante gard german architects of the early 20 th century were just decades ahead of their time...
