Welcome to the Goetheanum

The Goetheanum is the center of a global network of spiritually dedicated people. As the home of the School of Spiritual Science and the General Anthroposophical Society, it serves as a place for exchanges over spiritual issues and trainings in artistic and scientific fields. The events held here range from lectures on special topics to large international confrences. On the stage, local and touring ensembles present Eurythmy, dramas and plays, puppetry, and musical performances. Located in the Jura landscape 10 km south of Basel, the Goetheanum with its expressive architecture, sits on Dornacher Hill. The Goetheanum has a picturesque garden park, café, bookstore and card shop, and is an inviting place to visit. Welcome!
