Free guided city walk (in German)
In 1908, the architect and designer August Endell published a treatise on "The Beauty of the Metropolis", shortly after the completion of today's Hotel am Steinplatz, whose organic façade design by Endell set an example against the historicism of the neighbouring buildings. Around the Steinplatz, there are numerous other icons of modern architectural thinking, especially from the period of reconstruction after World War II, such as the new concert hall of the University of Arts, the Ludwig-Erhard-Haus, the former Telefunken high-rise or the architecture building of the Technical University of Berlin at Ernst-Reuter-Platz. Haus Hardenberg is currently the temporary home of the Bauhaus Archive.
On Ernst-Reuter-Platz, there is a pavilion made of reused doors and windows from the Bauhaus building in Dessau: an example of the creative use of architectural resources.

Politics, science, fine arts, literature, music and theatre have shaped the Steinplatz and its surroundings for around 150 years. It is the centre of a lively cultural, educational and commemorative landscape, which has been presented and made legible on city walks since 2020. In 2023, there will be once more guided tours on musical life, literature and science, supplemented by new walks on architecture and women's life around Steinplatz.
