The Van-de-Velde Walk Giudebook

The Van-de-Velde Walk Guidebook

Drawing on the well-known Bauhaus-Walk, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar students take people interested in or already great fans of Henry van de Velde on a special tour on the trail of the exceptional architect. »From the part to the whole« is the motto of this tour, which reveals Van de Velde’s seemingly hidden and almost forgotten art school ensemble.

The guidebook was recently published in order to reflect the impressions and information provided by the tour and to allow the visitor to later experience the tour again. Stroll through hallways of the art school building, past Rodin’s »Eva«, up the rolling staircase to the light-filled atelier with its striking curved window panes. Then walk over to the building of the former Großherzoglich Sächsischen Kunstgewerbeschule, Van de Velde’s main workshop in Weimar. Feel the spirit of timelessly beautiful architecture and learn through anecdotal history about one of the most famous representatives of a language of form that, according to Van de Veld, maintained that »the age of ornaments made of tendrils, flowers and women is over«.

The guidebook is available in the Bauhaus.Atelier | Info Shop Café for Euro 12.90.

The Bauhaus Walk Guidebook

The Bauhaus Walk Guidebook in German and English

Bauhaus Walk: On the Trail of the Early Bauhaus in Weimar

Student guides have been taking guests on the trail of the early Bauhaus since 2006 with this walking tour. Experience Bauhaus University’s history and presence during the era of the State Bauhaus, when Walter Gropius, Vassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger and many others lived their ideas, worked, learned and taught. 

The book captures the experience of the walking tour. It not only refers to the rich history of the university, but also describes all the stops on the walk, such as the building erected by Henry van de Velde – a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996 – the murals of Oskar Schlemmer, Joost Schmidt and Herbert Bayer, Auguste Rodin’s »Eva«, Walter Gropius’ Director’s Office, the Templeherrenhaus in Park an der Ilm and the Haus am Horn, Bauhaus’ first experimental house.

Now you can take the history and the stories home with you.

The guidebook is available in the Bauhaus.Atelier | Info Shop Café for Euro 12.90. It is also available in English.

150 Years of Bauhaus-Universität Weimar: 1860-2010

Bauhaus-Universität Weimar celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2010. The founding of the Großherzoglich-Sächsischen Kunstschule Weimar on October 1, 1860 created a significant location for the cultural center, which still influences the city to this day. Bauhaus-Universität Weimar created a number of events to celebrate its historical roots for the 150th anniversary.

The re-opening of the Van-de-Velde-Building on February 5, 2010 served as a prelude to the jubilee year. Celebrations included a number of events and culminated in a concentration of festivities in October that revived the spirit of the history.

Devoted to the 150th jubilee, 150 Years of Bauhaus-Universität Weimar is a special edition that appeared in the university journal der bogen until the beginning of 2011. You can download the entire edition as a PDF here.

The state-run Bauhaus was founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius in Weimar and is the design university of the 20th century, whose innovative declarations and impulses still affect the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar to this day. In 2009, we celebrated the 90th anniversary of the founding of Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, the cradle of modern architecture and art and contemporary design.
