A bit small

The audio guide was very well-written. Would like to see more models, and the school's effect on other/modern designs as well.

Though a little run down on the outside the interior was full of cutting edge designs from the Bauhaus era that are still relevant today, fascinating.

Very educational museum explaining where the Bauhaus movement came from with many illustrative examples of Bauhaus design. Worthwhile for anyone interested in modern design.

Ever bought anything from Ikea? Marveled at a steel and glass skyscraper? Delighted in modern design? Then chances are the designer or architect owes a huge debt of gratitude to the total design aesthetic of the international group of artists, designers and architects that gathered and taught and practised under the Bauhaus banner in Germany before WW2.

The museum has on show a range of... More

Lots to see and some to touch. The building itself was interesting with a lovely woodblock flooring. Helpful staff. Good audio guide. Shop tempting, but expensive!

long walk there and the place is quite small and really not that interesting. The limited collection made it the least favourite of all the amazing places we have seen in Berlin

You can not miss Bauhaus. All exhibitions presented might not be unforgettable, but there is plenty to learn from this art movement.

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.
