The Bauhaus in Dessau

Are you interested in learning more about the Bauhaus? Then join us on an excursion to the Bauhaus city of Dessau.

The Bauhaus was founded in 1919 in Weimar and experienced political pressure and financial difficulties. So the school moved to Dessau in 1925.

The Bauhaus Building in Dessau was designed by Walter Gropius. It was constructed in 1926 to house the schools of art, design and architecture in Dessau. We will tour this iconic building of classical modernism first. Not only its architecture followed the Bauhaus idea consequently, but also furniture and furnishings.

Following lunch at the Bauhausmensa, we will tour the settlement of the Bauhaus masters where famous instructors like Gropius, Moholy-Nagy, Feininger, Muche, Schlemmer, Kandinsky and Klee lived and worked. Even today, nearly ninety years later, the settlement still looks surprisingly modern.
