Additional Literature

If you are interested in the corresponding literature about the Horsehoe development you might also have a look at our library at Taut's Home - unfortunately most of this is only available in German. For all English and international guests we recommend our own publication about Bruno Tauts Hufeisensiedlung available as a bilingual version in English and German. Apart from the the Horseshoe estates the book written by Ben Buschfeld also serves as a handy guide about the other five UNESCO World Heritage estates in Berlin.

(*) Note: Katrin Lesser, the 2nd landlord, is an expert of garden monuments from the early 20th century and did the scientific research about the public greens, spaces and gardens of the Horseshoe estate and the Gartenstadt Falkenberg which was designed by Bruno Taut and her grand-grandfather Ludwig Lesser.
