Lonely Planet review

The unassuming village of Dornach, 13km south of Basel, is home to the Goetheanum , a rather other-worldly building that is the global headquarters of the Anthroposophical Society. Austrian philosopher and teacher Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925) developed the thinking behind anthroposophy, which proposes the possibility of apprehending a spiritual world through inner development. He also designed this 1928 building, done in reinforced concrete.
