Questions and Answers

Is it possible to visit the other buildings in the estate?

The Weissenhof Museum in Le Corbusier House is the only building that is open to the public in the Weissenhof Estate. All other buildings are private homes; they cannot be visited by individuals or in the context of any tour.
However, you are permitted to walk through the Estate and view and photograph the buildings from the outside without time constraints. There is a map of the estate at the Weissenhofwerkstatt in Mies van der Rohe House, which is also a good starting point.
A series of signs in front of each building provide information on the architect and layout.
Visitors are asked to respect the privacy of Estate residents.

Can I get married in the Weissenhof Museum?

Civil marriage ceremonies can be arranged in Le Corbusier’s two semidetached houses. Depending on the weather, the ceremony can be held on the museum’s roof terrace or in the transformable living room. Due to the limited space in the museum, the maximum number of guests permitted is fifteen.
Ceremonies can only be booked when the museum is closed: on Monday from 2 to 3 p.m. or on Friday from 9 to 10 a.m. or 10 to 11 a.m.
The charge is 535 euros, including taxes.
For more information, please contact us: info@weissenhofmuseum.de.

Pictures are permitted for private use in the Weissenhof Museum using a small camera without equipment. However, it is not permitted to publish these images or to use them online. Copyrights must be cleared and fees paid for any type of publication.
