Architecture Walk Dornach and the Goetheanum

Around 180 buildings, including many private homes and functional buildings, were erected around the Goetheanum over the last 100 years. The architecture they share is typical of the Goethean or sculptural-organic building style.

The buildings on a hill above the valley of the river Birs share the same architectural features with one another and the Goetheanum and reflect the original concept of Steiner’s “Anthroposophists’ Colony”.

Four walks have been created that make these spatial qualities visible and open the Anthroposophists’ Colony to a wider public. The starting point for all four walks is at the Goetheanum, from where they lead off in four different directions towards Dornach or Arlesheim, set within enchanted gardens (Ermitage Arlesheim) and parkland (Gartenpark Goetheanum).
