The brand new Bauhaus Museum welcomes you with the exciting question - "How do we want to live together?"

This question is as relevant today as it was then. To illustrate the connections of the Bauhaus - as an experimental field in the fields of free and applied art, design, architecture and pedagogy - to the present day, the museum can draw on a unique pool! In addition to contemporary documents exhibited for the first time, it provides a unique overview of the development of the influential design and art school.

Join us for a guided tour of what the museum has to offer!
