Who would not want to visit the birthplace of modernism? It is amazing to see what was accomplished in its short five years of existence. This was worth the 1.5 hour train ride south from Berlin even as a long day trip. It is a...More

This is a must-see place for architecture fans although it would have been interesting to find out more about the individuals involved at the beginning, especially the women. And they only vaguely explained why they had to leave Weimar.

An absolute must if you are visiting Dessau. The exhibition is most enlightening and it was great to see students working in the building - it feels alive!

The guided tour was great and took you to rooms otherwise not available to the public (Gropius' office, stage etc) (but only held in German), for someone who is interested in design and architecture this is a must-see. I took the train from Berlin to...More

We were lucky to spend half a year working on the project in the studios of this iconic building. Having a key from the Bauhaus door in your pocket — is a particular feeling for any designer or architect. Ten years later we returned to...More
