    Teutoburgia Siedlung

    Fast unverändert überdauerten die 136 Häuser der Gartenstadtsiedlung die Zeiten. Sie gilt, nach liebevoller und detailgetreuer Restauration, als Architekturdenkmal von großer Bedeutung. Die Zechensiedlung entstand zwischen 1909 und 1923 - und alsbald kam ihr die Zeche abhanden: Teutoburgia wurde 1925 stillgelegt. Um die Jahrhundertwende war die Idee der Gartenstadt große Mode. In Herne wurde das Konzept, das der Engländers Ebenezer Howard 1889 formuliert hatte, beispielhaft verwirklicht: viel Grün, große Vorgärten, eigene Hauseingänge, Blocks mit grünen Innenhöfen und individuell gestaltete Gebäude. Das Wohnen sollte sozial und menschlich sein.

    Nearly invariably the 136 houses of the garden city settlement outlasted the times .
    It is considered, after affectionate and detail-faithful restoration, as architecture monument of great importance.
    The bill settlement developed between 1909 and 1923 - and immediately you got lost the bill : Teutoburgia was shut down 1925
    Around the turn of the century the idea of the garden city was large fashion .
    In Herne the concept, which had formulated the Englishman Ebenezer Howard 1889, was carried out exemplarily: much green, large vorgaerten, own house entrances, block with green inner courts and arranged individual houses .
    Living should be social and human.
