Open House Athens

The 10th Open House Athens will take place in Athens on 1 & 2 April 2023!

Dozens of buildings open their doors, 2 routes unfold in the city and 500 volunteers prepare to show us the architecture of Athens.
Open House is a two-day free architectural guided tour for the public.
An event based on volunteerism and aiming to get to know architecture and Athens a little better.
An excuse to go out into the city, to look up at the streets we pass by every day, to see the buildings from a different perspective...

The event includes guided tours of public and private buildings, modern and historic, monuments, museums, theatres, residences, workplaces, and routes of architectural interest:
