    This nearly 20-kilometer tour takes you through the beautiful green southwest of Berlin in the district of Steglitz-Zehlendorf, where you will successively leave numerous buildings of Berlin Modernism. In addition to the architectural journey of discovery, this round with detours in the forest Grunewald, the Krummen Lanke or the Schlachtensee but also a lot of space to relax. A cultural tour to enjoy!Let's start at the Botanical Garden, easily reached by the Berlin S-Bahn. From here you start directly on the edge of Grunewald, where two interesting museums are waiting to be discovered by you at the Kulturhaus Dahlem. Especially enjoyable is a walk through the sculpture garden of the Kunsthaus, from here you come to the Brücke Museum with Art of Expressionism.In the further course you can finally expect some typical buildings of Berlin Modernism. These included the Waldsiedlung "Uncle Toms Hütte", which was planned in the 1920s and 1930s by the architects Bruno Taut, Hugo Häring and Otto Rudolf Salvisberg, the houses of Perl and Werner by architect Mies van der Rohes and the house Lewin in the noble villa quarter from Zehlendorf, designed by Walter Gropius. You breathe in the spirit of Berlin's modernism almost by jogging - of course it's also worth stopping and examining the simple architecture in detail.During a short break at the idyllic Schlachtensee you can rest for part 2 of the architectural round. The Haus am Waldsee not only houses interesting exhibitions, you can also borrow an audio guide with twelve stations on modern architecture in Zehlendorf and get even deeper into the subject. On the way back, the huge campus of Freie Universität Berlin with its impressive Henry Ford building will be the last representative of the modern age for this tour - after that you will roll back to the starting point, the Botanical Garden.
