In 1927 Le Corbusier was invited along with 9 other modernist architects to design houses on a planned new housing estate on the hillside overlooking Stuttgart. Almost immediately the development became mired in controversy even before the Nazis came to power in 1933 and condemned...More

If you are a fan of architecture, regardless of what style, this is something worth seeing, even if only because of the location (overlooking the inner city of Stuttgart) Many different buildings, by different architects, over time blended well together to showcase what 1920's architecture...More

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.

An amazing housing development from shortly after World War I, the colony is so beautiful for anyone that treasures architecture. 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
