Architecture Walk Dornach Arlesheim

The starting point for each of the four architecture paths is always the Goetheanum (see the map of orientation outside the south entrance). From here, the different colored sign posted paths lead in four directions through Dornach and Arlesheim. Selected buildings can be independently explored on shorter or longer walks. Flyers about these paths can be found in the foyer of the Goetheanum for free. A comprehensive guide "Architekturführer Goetheanumhügel" (Architecture guide of the Goetheanum hill) is available in the card shop on the ground floor of the Goetheanum and in the bookstore. These maps are also available here to view and print out.
