With the Sagrada Familia of Guadi, probably one of the most innovative monument of the XXyh century. Very interesting and harmonious touches of colors inside, contrasting with the concrete. This monument needs to be better known.

The location and the surrounding is well chosen for this unique building. Unfortunately it is not the original which was a wooden building. That was destroyed by fire in new year's eve/night 1922/23. The inside of this building is much more interesting. Don't forget to...More

This unique building is far more beautiful inside than the concrete mastodont outer appearance. Inside is where the uneven angles and colourfullness really comes to its right. This church like place still worships the Steiner way of life. remember to observe the surrounding neighbourhood houses...More

Designed by Rudolf Steiner, the architect inspired by esotherics and symbolism, the building has a gorgeous air, a clever play of the positive and negative volumes. It is not finished itself, therefore it has a harsh, raw feeling, just like nature itself. Best way to...More

Is not a touristic site per se. Apart from the beautiful landscape and the special architecture Dornach has not much to offer. But if you visit the Goetheanum Theather for one of the artistic performances, you are in for a lifetime experience. Absolutely astonishing.

The area around the Goetheanum consists of over 120 "special-architecture" hauses, which make any visit very unique. Some tips: - When visiting with a car, bring coins - there's no free parking! - Visit Monday-Wednesdays between 2pm and 2:30pm, this is the time when most...More

This place is very special: The building, the paintings and colors inside, the windows and the history. Take a guided tour in this building. Also the surrounding, outview and the special events are splended. A place to go!
