Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you go by public transport then don't trust maps from Apple or Google. Take the U-bahn to Killesberg and walk down hill. The suggestions from Apple will take you severely up hill and force you to cross school grounds.
The museum is a double-home being one part museum and one part "this is how it looked". Spend time in the museum to get a better understanding of the 2nd part. The colours, open spaces, and roof top garden are inspiring. But the real tip is to exit the museum and walk the area. There are probably 10 buildings that do remain.
Absolutely worth a visit.

Loved this place. Really interesting buildings and fascinating story behind them. Lots of background info in the museum. Would have been nice to get inside other houses but not possible as people live in them!

We had a stroll around the Modernist District in the late evening, and the empty streets and dark corners were giving a bit of an eerie feeling but the architecture itself is magnificent, and worth taking a tram or metro up the hill. The visitor centre was already closed at that point, but would love to see it next time!

Is a housing estate built for the Deutscher Werkbund exhibition in Stuttgart in 1927. It was an international showcase of what later became known as the International style of architecture. Two of the buildings were designed by the French-Swiss architect Le Corbusier and these are now part of the World Heritage Site The Architectural Work of Le Corbusier, an Outstanding Contribution to the Modern Movement, which was designated in 2016. The World Heritage Site consists of 17 separate sites in seven countries.

If you like different styles of architecture this is a must. You discover a quiet quarter on the hills of Stuttgart with its 1920s housings. To complete: a museum to explain you the era, the needs and the advances in modern construction.

It was very interesting to see all those houses designed by Le Corbusier and others. If you are interested in architecture and design periods like "Bauhaus", I would recommend it to you.

In 1927 Le Corbusier was invited along with 9 other modernist architects to design houses on a planned new housing estate on the hillside overlooking Stuttgart. Almost immediately the development became mired in controversy even before the Nazis came to power in 1933 and condemned its decadence with more traditionalist architects queuing up to criticise it. Amazingly the estate is still there. By 1958, though in a sorry state, its importance was recognised and by the 1980s it was being restored. Now you can visit the 2 semi-detached Le Corbusier houses for a very reasonable 5 euros. One half is a recreation of what the original 1927 house would have looked like. It's typical Le Corbusier: it's stylish, ahead of its time and astoundingly adaptable. The other side is a fascinating museum of the history of the houses anf estate. The two are united by its roof garden with breathtaking views over Stuttgart. You can get here from Lowentor ubahn but be warned: you've got a long walk uphill (go straight up from the ubahn and then left at the junction) but Kilsebbe ubahn is easy walking distance and bus 44 from the city centre goes right past. Afterwards use the handy plan they give you to explore the rest of the estate on foot. All the other houses are private residences but have informative plaques outside and are stylish and modernist.

If you are a fan of architecture, regardless of what style, this is something worth seeing, even if only because of the location (overlooking the inner city of Stuttgart)

Many different buildings, by different architects, over time blended well together to showcase what 1920's architecture promised the people. Some of the buildings have been kept in perfect condition, some of them have somewhat deteriorated, but it adds to the charm.

A great place to visit with interesting buildings from the same area by different architects (Le Corbusier & Jeanneret, Mies van der Rohe, Oud, Scharoun, ...). Sadly, we couldn't photograph the museum without the ugly maintenance van in front of it.

Nice panoramic views in the area and the ABK or Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart nearby is interesting too (a bit brutalist inside).

It may be difficult to hide from the sun or the rain and we didn't spot a bar closeby to hide in or go to the toilet.

It's a flat walk from nearby U-Bahn / metro station Killesberg. The parking in the Killesberg shopping centre isn't for free but parking in the streets nearby is no problem.

Don't mistake the Weißenhofsiedlung with the Weißenburg, they're on different hills !

But fascinating to understand the collective view of workers' housing, and to see how narrow they though passages could be. But the fittings were well beyond what workers could afford. Definitely worth a visit, though very crowded when we went.
