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.

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.

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.

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...
