The Bauhaus is a must when you visit Dessau! It's a well organised and bespoke place with knowledgeable guides who tell you about its impressive past. Dessau as my home town used to flourish during East German regime. Very sad to see the city being...More

Choose an audio guide in English. DIY visit as English tour guides not so informative and/or well spoken. You see more alone. Do your visit to the main building when you are there.

This is a must see stop on any modernist fan's tour of Europe. The Bauhaus building is simplicity itself and its wonderful to wander and soak up its simple lines and thank god that it survived national socialism. Interesting exhibition. It's a shame that much...More

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.

The external structure and complex is lovely. However the standing display was really poor considering the collection they must have. It seems they are planning a new museum for the future and this may be why the exhibits are so limited. If so they should...More

The actual Bauhaus and the Masters' houses are the definition of Bauhaus design. The museum's exhibitions explain and demonstrate Bauhaus' beginnings & timeline. The only thing missing is some example of the original pottery left behind to the Weimar period. The wallet-dangerous shop is filled...More

The bauhaus is normal flats avant la lettre. A city that has been completely shot to ruins and these omplexes miraculously survived really worth the trip

I thought, they teach me more about Bauhaus itself and it's history, founders, etc. But the only thing I found about these informations are found in the cellar in a seperate tiny room. They charge EUR 7,50 for a single admission, which is too much...More
