Okay, it's an archive. But i didn't think it was very accessible to the lay person. If you are a designer then i can see it might be more interesting. I love Bauhaus furniture and style but there was only a limited amount on display. And you aren't allowed to take photographs either. The exterior of the building is stunning... More

I loved it - from the first sight. It's not usual museum – it’s a place that art and architecture lovers MUST visit. Bauhaus is a school of design that has a significant influence on modern art. The exhibit space is rather small and you can spend there from 1 to 4 hours it just depends on you and your... More

Visited on a recent trip to Berlin. I have always liked the work that came out of the Bauhaus but I didn't realise how it all came about. Headsets in English gave an informative background to the visual.

I went here with my boyfriend who is a product design graduate. He thoroughly enjoyed the archive and benefited from the visit more than myself. Whilst I don't have a particular passion for product design specifically, I do have an interest in art and substance and found a lot of the information and exhibits interesting and enjoyable. Not too pricey,... More

I was with a friend. We were a bit lost for words. Amazingly modern looking stuff from the 1920s. Teapots, fitted kitchen, good photos, fabulous shop. A real game changer, and a must for any Berlin trip.

From the small but intriguing building to the collection which really captures the skills and talents of the masters of Bauhaus this is a really worthwhile place to visit. Don't miss the shop with some truly innovative design products.

The Bauhaus has a special role to play in the history of 20th century culture, architecture, design, art and new media. As a School of Design, the Bauhaus revolutionised artistic and architectural thinking and production worldwide, and is considered a headstone of the Modern age, which may be visited in Dessau until nowadays. The Bauhaus building and the Master houses... More

I went to the Bauhaus archives hoping to see works by Gropius, Klee and Kandinsky but there was almost nothing by them, only works by their students at the Bauhaus school. Nonetheless, it was interesting.

At 5 euros, it is well worth making the effort to find the Bauhaus Archive, set in a distinctive white building in the characteristic Bauhaus style just on the bank of the river Spree in the south Tiergarten. You can hire an audioguide for a returnable 20 euros deposit which will help you understand the short, but amazingly productive history... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
