Fallingwater Reopens for Winter Walks
Tours explore the landmark’s landscape and exterior.
Fallingwater is offering Winter Walk tours that allow people to explore the exterior beauty of the landmark during the height of the snowy season. Fallingwater’s stunning architectural design was inspired by the landscape where it was built. This Laurel Highlands UNESCO World Heritage Site, approximately 90 minutes from Pittsburgh, is surrounded by 5,100 acres of conservatory land known as the Bear Run Nature Reserve.
“Exploring Fallingwater during this time of year, with limited people on site and often a dusting of frost or snow on the ground, allows one the opportunity for intimate interactions with the architecture and this beautiful mountain landscape,” said director and Western Pennsylvania Conservancy Vice President Justin Gunther in a release.
The Winter Walk tour explores the grounds, trails and exterior aspects of Fallingwater, including some of its terraces. The tour runs for approximately one hour.
Tours will take place through Friday, March 5. Admission is $15 for adults and free for children ages 6 and under. Tickets can be bought through Fallingwater’s website or by calling at 724-329-8501 or Fallingwater@paconserve.org. Reservations are required as part of Fallingwater’s COVID-19 health and safety measures. The Fallingwater Museum Store, Café and Speyer Gallery at the Visitor Center will remain closed for the season and do not reopen until March 6, 2021.
