A great place to visit with interesting buildings from the same area by different architects (Le Corbusier & Jeanneret, Mies van der Rohe, Oud, Scharoun, ...). Sadly, we couldn't photograph the museum without the ugly maintenance van in front of it. Nice panoramic views in...More

But fascinating to understand the collective view of workers' housing, and to see how narrow they though passages could be. But the fittings were well beyond what workers could afford. Definitely worth a visit, though very crowded when we went.

Only the pair of semi-detached houses of Le Corbusier is open to the public. There are still some beauties preserved in the neighbourhood. My personal favourite is the Hans Scharoun, Holzelweg 1.

We found the complex and the two apartments to be really interesting when you consider their age and especially their history and the architects approach and vision. I highly recommend it if you are really into architecture & design.

The Weissenhof Colony (Weissenhofsiedlung) combines the practical architecture with the modern aesthetic. The buildings were so far ahead of their time in the 1920s that...More

The museum in the double house designed by Le Corbusier and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret is split into two exhibits. One side of the structure is dedicated to a museum that tells the story of the Weißenhofsiedlung and places it in the context of world...More

What an interesting idea to invite leading architects in 1927 to build prototype "ordinary homes" on one single site. Pver half a million people visited the exhibition. Many houses were destroyed in the war, but lots are still there to see (and better still lived...More
