A sculpted concrete building serving as the hub of multi field cultural and scientific renewal projects and center of the Anthroposophic worldview. There are tours I think German, English, Spanish perhaps other languages too. There are beautiful carved glass windows with spiritual significance. A nice cafeteria for coffee and a snack. Bookstore has innovative toys, loads of books with lots of translations. Several meeting places from a great hall to conference rooms as there are often multiple conferences ongoing.
The Goetheanum is the spiritual and administrative center of anthroposophy and Waldorf schools, based on the teachings of Rudolf Steiner. The building was constructed in the 1920s. The organic concrete structure avoids (mostly) right angles. A guided tour is recommended. There is also a bookshop and a restaurant.
