Discover Weimar

Every Wednesday between 13:30 and 17:00, you can enjoy a cultural programme about the history of Thuringia, Weimar and the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, free of charge. The topics vary from week to week.

The tours are limited to 25 participants and are offered mostly in English.

On selected days we additionally offer German guided tours for participants of the German language courses.

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. And 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, they provide 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!
