This is a prime example of modernist residential architecture of the first half of the 20th century. It is very good to see the human scale of this very successful project.

Hufeisen means "horseshoe" in German. Architects Bruno Taut and Martin Wagner foresaw almost 100 years ago the advent of the drone era. Only the desire to visit UNESCO world heritage sites can bring a tourist here to neukeln. Hufeisen - the most interesting of the 6 objects of the Berlin modernism housing estate (Gartenstadt Falkenberg, Wohnstadt Carl Legien, the Schillerpark, the White city and Siemensstadt). Taut used at Hufeisen experience gained in Falkenberg. Despite the high density of buildings (1072 apartments), great importance was given to green and free space. Even now, Hufeisen looks quite fresh. The main design technique of Taut-color division of facades works on perception and now. A great plus of Hufeisen - transport accessibility to the subway line S7.

This housing estates are on UNESCO World Heritage List. It's not that easy to find them, but you can use the google map app on the smartphone.
I've seen blocks here in different architectures from different periods. The architecture of the houses is wonderful. Here, it is nameplates with enough explanation.
I like it very much this walk and the estates.

A few stops from central Berlin on the U7 is Blaschkoallee and from here it is just a 500m walk to Hufeisensiedlung, Horse Shoe Estate, the finest of the five UNESCO recognised examples of Modernist Housing. This is how all estates should look and has been brilliantly preserved.
