Architecture Day in Germany or 'Tag der Architektur' is a twenty-year-old tradition, organised by the regional architects’ associations in Germany with the support of the federal German architects’ association BAK. In each region the public is invited to visit a vast range of different buildings and offices.
An important opportunity for architecture lovers, who will be offered a glimpse behind the scenes of some of the country’s best-known and little-known buildings which are normally not open to the public and an opportunity to meet and talk to the architects.
'Tag der Architektur'' is very popular with the public, and there is even a 'Tag der Architektur' app for planning your visit and participation in a series of related events ranging from exhibitions to children’s programmes.
The motto “Architektur bewegt” alludes to the fact that interested people get on the move to visit buildings. And it is only by inviting visitors that the architects can inspire the emotions they intend to convey in their works. The initiative helps us realise what it means to share your passion with other people who work in the field, in view of the great importance of architecture in everyone’s lives.
