Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: The Fagus factory was built in 1911 by architect and Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius and is known throughout the world as the first building conforming to the modern architectural style. The singular steel-and-glass architectural style enabled the architect to endow a medium-sized factory with an unusual appearance that broke with tradition. Fagus shoe lasts have been produced in this living monument for more than 100 years. This production process has now been enhanced by the corporate divisions associated with GreCon Electronics and Grecon Dimter Machine Building. Since the year 2011, this architectural masterpiece has numbered among the UNESCO World Heritage cultural sites. Visit the Fagus factory, retrace the journeys of Walter Gropius and Carl Benscheidt (the innovative founder of the company) and experience how tradition meets innovation and architecture lines up with production.
