Start Tourismusverein Oder-Region Eisenhüttenstadt e.V.
Destination Eisenhüttenstadt railroad station
Length 8 kilometers (alternatively 4 km only tour through the planned city)
Duration 1 hour (without optional tour extension to Fürstenberg (Oder))
Arrival/departure RE1 to Eisenhüttenstadt, bus 453

Built in the 1950s as the first socialist planned city for the workers of the steelworks, the architecture and history of the former GDR can be experienced up close here. The magazine "Geo-Saison" named the "Iron Hot City", freely translated by Tom Hanks, one of the top cities in 2023. The city tour leads through the listed residential complexes one to three. In addition to special buildings, sculptures, murals, mosaics and generously designed open spaces characterize the unmistakable cityscape. Be sure to visit the museums. The Utopia and Everyday Life Museum can draw on a huge collection of things that contribute to the reappraisal of GDR history. If you still feel like exploring, you can hire a bike from the tourist information office and discover the Hüttenstadt suburb of Fürstenberg (Oder). It stands in stark contrast to the socialist model town with its narrow alleyways, the old fishermen's quarter and a 14th century parish church. Works by GDR artists can be viewed in the town museum. Those who like historic vehicles will get their money's worth in the fire department and technology museum.

Tip

For an even more nostalgic feeling, you can also book a city tour in a Trabant at the tourist information office.

Worth seeing:
  • Documentation Center Everyday Culture of the GDR
  • Municipal museum
  • Fire department and technology museum

  • Tourist Information Eisenhüttenstadt
