For real architecture lovers but also for those who truly enjoy escaping the common shapes and forms to enter a world that is now a society well founded in a mix of present and past to enter tomorrow's interpretation of space.one-of-a-kind experience.

We drove up from Leipzig for the day to see the famous Bauhaus school in Dessau and the buildings and also the associated history were very impressive. I am glad that we went but overall I found the experince somewhat disappointing. We paid the 7.50 entrance fee each for the main Bauhaus only plus 5.00 for the audio guide. I... More

In a touristique area known all over the world for the Bauhaus , even the tourist information are lacking and people are unpleasant , not much to se except the building and you havé to insist to visit the desk of Gropius without any translation ( réservéd for guides tour in german)

Whether or not you're a Weimar history buff like me, it is worth making the 2 hour trip to Dessau from Berlin (31 euros return) to see the groundbreaking Bauhaus. It's clearly signposted from the station and is just a short walk. Go for the combination ticket which grants you admission to the Bauhaus exhibitions in the old school building... More

Well worth the visit. We had a german language tour (ably translated for us by a charming lady) but take the audio guide it's ample. The unbelievable modernist building dates from the late 1920's and yet you feel as if you could be in the 60's or even later

The Bauhaus movement started in Weimar before moving to Dessau and finally Berlin. Dessau is where you have the most iconic Bauhaus school and a fantastic museum. I also loved staying overnight in the Bauhaus school rooms. Fantastic experience immersing yourself in this art history.

I have been reading about the Bauhaus and looking at photographs for almost fifty years but this was my first chance to visit the real thing. It did not disappoint. The latest restoration (2006) means that we can now see the buildings in close to their original state. Our tour took us through the whole complex, including the Director's office,... More

Totally loved the journey I spent in Dessau, because it's a beautiful neighborhood. Full of art, and specially for the people who likes the design and architecture, visit Dessau, it's totally recommended. Bauhaus, the school of art, it's beautiful and amazing. I enjoyed this trip to the fullest.
