Infostation > Hufeisensiedlung (Southeast)

This Infostation is located at 44 Fritz-Reuter-Allee in the right-hand head building of the horseshoe complex and is part of the tour through the Hufeisensiedlung.

The best go-to location for anyone interested in World Heritage Sites, the office opens every Friday and Sunday afternoon. It is run on a voluntary basis by the local association of the Friends and Supporters of the Horseshoe Estate (Freunde und Förderer der Hufeisensiedlung Berlin-Britz e.V.), which was founded in 2007 during the ongoing privatisation of the estate. In the front, there is a café serving drinks and homemade cakes, and a bookstore is attached. The back rooms host a permanent bilingual exhibition on the Horseshoe Estate’s history. Brief details on Berlin’s other five World Heritage housing estates as well as selected planners and residents round out the offering. A special catalogue and bilingual architecture guide have been published for the exhibition. A typical GEHAG Kitchen can also be viewed on site. Postcards and locally made products are sold, and cultural events are held occasionally.
