Homage to Martin Wagner: An exciting and entertaining discovery tour through the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Spandau - Siemensstadt
The "Golden 20s" of the Weimar Republic or "Babylon Berlin": the tour takes place in this exciting time. The dynamic is still noticeable today. Experience it with us.
In Weimar, Dessau and Berlin, the centenary of the anniversary of the Bauhaus movement. It is unknown to many interested people,that the Siemensstadt in Spandau can make a significant contribution to this.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site "Berlin Modernism Housing estates - Siemensstadt large settlement" has a large stock of excellently preserved Bauhaus architecture from 1930, in addition to the so-called organic architecture. An almost unique opportunity to compare the two directions in a building project.
This exciting and entertaining discovery tour is not only about the architectural highlights, it also explains many interesting things about Berlin around 1930:
- Who was the settlement designed for, who actually lived here?
- Did the architects forget the shopping facilities?
- What did Siemens have to do with the project?
- And is the housing estate not actually located in Charlottenburg?
These and other questions will be answered during a tour lasting more than two hours. During the tour, there are also many partly hidden special features to be discovered in the buildings and green spaces.In addition, we will look at the starting point and background of the 'Berlin Modernism" and the construction of the housing estate.
All of this is not dry, boring and full of numbers, but relaxed, entertaining and interesting for everyone.
