Guided tours

There are no regular guided tours without prior booking or registration. However, there are a number of private organisations and small companies (like the main author of this website) who offer guided tours and/or architectural walks through the UNESCO World Heritage "Berlin Modernism Housing Estates" upon request. These can be identified via search engines and local websites like as well as via a special touring event page within Facebook.

A free opportunity to visit the estates is usually provided by the so-called "Day of the Open Monument", which in Berlin always takes place on the second weekend in September and offers a broad program of visits and guided tours in German language.

Information can be obtained from the operators of the [glossary key="infostation-siemensstadt"]Infostation Siemenststadt[/glossary] and its counterpart, the [glossary key="infostation-hufeisensiedlung"]Infostation Hufeisensiedlung[/glossary]. Here, people interested in monuments, tourists and neighbours can obtain information on the history of the estates on certain occasions. Furthermore, interested parties can contact Berlin´s tourist agency or the regional tourist information offices of the respective districts.

Please note

All six World Heritage estates are residential areas. This requires appropriate consideration. Walking paths, general behaviour and extensive photo taking that could disturb the privacy of the residents needs to be avoided.
