A piece of history that you can touch.

It was a great experience to see and visit the house of Le Corbusier. For architecture enthusiasts it is a 'must see' in Stuttgart.

This is a unique opportunity to see how progressive and visionary these famous architects were -- so many years ago. Most of it is NOT open to the public which is a testimony to the longevity of good design. People are living there and enjoying their homes. One house is open and it was a thrill to see it including... More

Amazing concept if you think how old the houses are. It was a groundbreaking concept and architecture plus interior design all together. And fortunately there are many houses still intact. In fact people are living in them, exactly what they are built for o). Some houses i.e the one designed by Walter Gropius got destroyed in WW2. A must is... More

This semed like a great opportunity to see well known modernist architecture examples from many of the big names alongside each other. Sadly it's not quite up to that, with many building destroyed in the war, and only the Corbusier open, and not the most user friendly leaflet or layout. But well worth a visit if you have any interest... More

If you're interested in architecture you should definetly go there: all the famous members of the Bauhaus group built houses on one of the hills surrounding Stuttgart. You may also want to visit the Killesber Park which is just round the corner.

Weissenhofsiedlung  (Weissenhof Estate) is an excellent example of modern residential architecture. We walked around the neighborhood in 45 minutes and very much enjoyed seeing the variety of architects works. The neighborhood was quiet and we were able to view it without other tourists around (December). Homes are occupied but be sure to take the walk path that goes between backyards.... More

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
