City Stroll through the Hufeisensiedlung (horse shoe housing estate)

Event for Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin

City historian and Neukölln expert Henning Holsten will tell us about the next Berlin settlement, the Hufeisensiedlung, as part of this year’s architecture theme. It is an architectural landmark of international renown. Who moved into what is today a World Heritage Site in the 1920s? Which demands did architects and housing administrations make on the new residents? And how did this new style of living look in practice?

The tour takes a peek behind the doors of the Hufeisensiedlung architectural monument, where politics and everyday life, united departure into the future and retreat into the private sphere still present a peculiar mix today. Last but not least, we welcome the head of temporary exhibitions, Gregor Lersch, as a resident of the Hufeisensiedlung.
