Check-In and Check-Out

Arrival & Check-In

On arrival dates we welcome you personally at our meeting point in Weimar main station. The train station is quite small, so you can't miss us. If you have booked accommodation through us, you will receive your room key here and will be driven to your accommodation (free shuttle service). In addition, all participants will receive a city map and a welcome folder including your Bauhaus Summer School ID card. Please take good care of it: From the first day on it will serve as an entrance ticket and ticket for the Thuringian public transport!

Later or Earlier arrivals:

Please note that we can only welcome you personally during the periods mentioned. The shuttle service is also only available on these dates. If you arrive before or after the mentioned dates, you may have to rent a hotel or hostel room and a taxi yourself. You will have to pay the costs for this yourself. If you arrive one (or a few days) earlier, then simply come by the station on the official arrival day (Saturday). If you arrive on Sunday, we will welcome you at our welcome stand on the university campus (see "final information" for additional information).

If you arrive in Weimar before the official arrival time, you can look for accommodation on the website of the city of Weimar.

Departure & Check-Out

If you have booked accommodation with the Bauhaus Summer School, you should start planning your check-out in the week before departure.

Room in a shared apartment

If you are staying in a shared room or a privately rented student housing, you should get in contact with your contact person. You will find his or her contact information on the Welcome-to-Weimar sheet that was laid out ready for you in your room at the beginning of your stay. You should agree on an appointment for the contact person to check your room. During this inspection, he or she will check whether everything is okay with the room. If everything's fine, your contact person will sign the so-called walk-through certificate. On this document will also be noted where you will hand in your key - whether you leave it in the apartment or take it to the train station on the official day of departure and hand it in at the Summer School meeting point.

Student hall & low budget

If you have booked a (low budget) room in the student hall, you will be asked to write down your departure time in a list in the week before departure. Either your tutor will hand out a list in your course, or you can come to the course office and sign the list there. Before departure you will be contacted by the Summer School to arrange a room check. If everything's okay, you will get the signed so-called walk-through certificate. You should bring this signed certificate, together with the room key, to the meeting point at the Weimar train station on the official day of departure. You should leave your accommodation by 12 noon on the day of departure. When you leave your room for the last time, don't forget to empty the trash, close the window and switch off the light.


Early or late departure: If you wish to leave earlier, please contact the person of the Summer School team responsible for accommodation. He or she will then try to arrange everything accordingly.
Please note that it is not possible to stay longer in your accommodation.

If you want to stay in Weimara little bit longer, you can look for accommodation on the website of the city of Weimar.
