Karlsruhe: Dammerstock Settlement and Estate Walking Tour

4. Karlsruhe: Dammerstock Settlement and Estate Walking Tour

The famous "Bauhaus" architect Walter Gropius did not have it easy with the "Dammerstock" housing estate, which he built in 1928 in the south of Karlsruhe according to an avant-garde concept. The vernacular mocked the unusual building arrangement as "Jammerstock" because of its supposed narrowness. Today, the building is considered a showcase project of "Neues Bauen" - at that time, it even had to put up with "chamber pot" jokes. What exactly it is all about and why the "Dammerstock" settlement is still considered an attractive residential area today, you will learn during a 90-minute architectural guided tour with a special focus on the "Waschhaus", at that time the settlement's meeting centre.

Detailed information about practically everything worth seeing and interesting in Karlsruhe. It's a lot of fun, especially when the weather is nice in the open-top bus. However, the "hop on hop off" is very limited, since the buses only run three times a day. So you can practically only get off twice if you take the first bus of the day and then continue on the next bus. Or you can take the last bus and then the first and second the next day (only works on weekends).

Great and interesting audio information about Karlsruhe. Well-chosen route (except for the approach to the Rhine port) Inexpensive and entertaining information tour.

One thing..there should be English as a standard recording as only tourists who do not understand German come to these tours.

A good trip with information about Karlsruhe and Durlach. The break on the Durlacher Turmberg is too short.

Was a nice tour with a fair amount of building sightseeing and commentary!
