Settlement

The extensive complex is listed in its entirety as national heritage. The still existing buildings from the early construction phase 1919-1934 (these are around 20) and the cemetery are designated as individual monuments. Since 2015, some of them could be repaired with funds from the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art and the Deutschen Stiftung Denkmalschutz.

 

The complex, which has now circa 40 edifices (the youngest from 2009), is open to visitors for their own exploration all over the year and accessible without barriers. The booklet "Denkmale 1919-34 im Taschenformat" ("Monuments 1919-1934 in pocket-size") explains the history of the individual monuments and contains an overview plan for orientation. It is available at the Loheland store & café for a fee of € 0.50. An English version as well as an audio guide is in preparation.

 

On selected dates, the restoration progress of the Waggonia is explained, which could meantime be initiated by the support of the Deutsche Stiftung Denkmalschutz - this year, for example, on the nationwide day of the open monument”, 8th of September. A basic understanding of the German language is helpful.
