Visited the site with a friend who was really into the location. He was very happy. I thought it was good but I wasn't blown away. It's still a working school and there isn't much to see in the museums and exhibits.

The Bauhaus main building is an icon of 20th century architecture, yet when you see it it still surprises and enchants. The interior has to be visited room by room, the exhibits are all classics. about one km away, in a pine stand there are the masters' houses, also designed by Gropius - mind-bogglingly, Klee and Kandinsky shared the same house. On your way to Berlin Wittemberg etc, please stop in Dessau.

If you're interested in design or architecture then you already have some idea of what the Bauhaus represents. I loved it here! The Masters' houses are not far and well worth seeing and spending time with. Its worth the trip out if you're heading in from Berlin etc. I would say leave a full day for it. There are temporary exhibitions on at the Bauhaus - I can't remember which one I saw but it was really well curated. The Bauhaus canteen is a must see, too!
