Tour of the Hufeisensiedlung, 22nd July 2012


The tour cancelled in June now rescheduled for 2pm on 22nd July.  All other details the same:

Ben Buschfeld and his wife Katrin Lesser ( conduct private tours of the estate; Katrin is a landscape architect; her great-grandfather was Ludwig Lesser, a luminary in the field.

Length 1-1/2 to 2 hours, cost €7 per head, departing on foot from U-Bahn station Parchimer Allee at street level, on the corner of Parchimer Allee and Fritz-Reuter-Allee.

The tour will hopefully conclude with a visit to Taut’s Home (, designed by Bruno Taut and faithfully restored with furnishings of the era. This is a holiday flat, so if that property happens to be occupied, Ben will show us around his private home — also designed by Taut — and show photos and documentation of the Taut’s Home renovation.

Max 20 participants. In the event of poor weather we’ll reschedule.
