Bauhaus - Dessau

An absolute must if you are visiting Dessau. The exhibition is most enlightening and it was great to see students working in the building - it feels alive!

The guided tour was great and took you to rooms otherwise not available to the public (Gropius' office, stage etc) (but only held in German), for someone who is interested in design and architecture this is a must-see. I took the train from Berlin to Dessau only for this, and it was well worth the trip.

We were lucky to spend half a year working on the project in the studios of this iconic building. Having a key from the Bauhaus door in your pocket — is a particular feeling for any designer or architect. Ten years later we returned to this place to see our fellow-students and celebrate the anniversary of our project. Perhaps, not... More

The New York Times had an excellent article about the Bauhaus in August 2016, which prompted me to make the journey to the birthplace of modernism and the international style. I would recommend the guided tour to see certain rooms that are off limits to unescorted visitors. Dessau is easy to get to by regional train from Berlin and a... More

If you are interested in the base of modern architecture this is a must see. The buildings are beautiful and the tour is very worth to do.

While too often overblown and too often down on people's lists as a remote museum in Eastern Germany, the Bauhaus museum can connect to many aspects of our modern and daily lives. The museum is fascinating to pilgrims of modernism, architects, and designers. I belong to that group, waiting to see it for more than 30 years, but have to... More

Anyone with an interest in architecture and design would find this extremely interesting and relate to its historical context, difficult to imagine impact for those without an interest. There is so much to take in here and its impact on the then future which we are fortunate to have experienced of course.

As an architect I had to go and see the Bauhaus when I had the chance. It is a stunning building and I really enjoyed walking there and checking it out from any angle. Unfortunately I was only able to go there later in the evening (as I was there on a business trip), so could not go in.
