Bauhaus day

101 years of Bauhaus!

The Bauhaus was founded in Weimar in 1919 - reason enough to spend a day searching for the traces of the Bauhaus!

Practical exercise in the workshops was the linchpin of a Bauhaus education. That is why you too can become active:
In cooperation with the Klassik-Stiftung Weimar, we invite you to exciting workshops in the newly opened Bauhaus Museum! Inspired by the Bauhaus masters László Moholy-Nagy, Paul Klee, or Hannes Meyer you will deal with various aspects of the Bauhaus - not only theoretically, but practically!

In addition to tracing the Bauhaus spirit through handicraft, we will also send you on a discovery tour through Weimar:

If you book the Bauhaus Day on August 9, an experienced guide will take you to the beginning of the 20th century in Weimar and to the founding period of the Bauhaus. Politics, society, art - the exciting mixture of time will be illuminated in many facets!

On the Bauhaus Day on August 23, you will take a guided walk through Weimar by night, learning historical and anecdotal facts about the beginnings of the Bauhaus: Based on the annual lantern festival of the Bauhäusler, you will take a tour to the former studios and homes of the Bauhaus masters such as Gropius, Schlemmer, Klee, Itten, Moholy-Nagy - equipped with your own latern.
