Corona FAQ

What can I visit?
From 30 March 2021, the Bauhaus Museum Dessau and the Bauhaus Building can be visited again.

Where can I buy tickets?
Tickets must be purchased online in advance of your visit. Admission cannot be permitted without a pre-purchased ticket. Purchase at the ticket counter in the Bauhaus Museum or Bauhaus Building is not possible. Tickets will be available exclusively online.

What rules apply when visiting the Bauhaus Dessau?
Due to the corona pandemic, visitors have to wear a medical face mask when entering the buildings. Excluded are children up to the age of 6 years; deaf and hard of hearing people, their accompanying person and, if necessary, persons who communicate with them; persons for whom the use of a mouth-nose cover is not possible or unreasonable due to a disability, pregnancy or for health reasons. This must be substantiated in an appropriate manner. 
All visitors also have to sanitise their hands, maintain a minimum distance of 2 metres and provide their contact details. Furthermore, only a limited number of visitors may enter the buildings at the same time. These measures are part of the prescribed safety and hygiene concept. 
We ask you to follow the rules, otherwise access cannot be permitted.

Why do I have to provide my contact details?
The contact details of each guest of the Bauhaus Dessau are recorded in order to track possible chains of infection. This is required by the SARS-CoV-2 containment regulation of the state of Saxony-Anhalt. The data will only be stored for this purpose and only as long as necessary.

What do I need to bring with me?
Please bring your own mouth-nose cover. Apart from that, if possible, bring nothing or only small bags. Unfortunately, the lockers cannot be used.

Why is it not possible to visit the Masters’ Houses?
The Masters’ Houses will remain closed. Due to the narrow rooms, the minimum distance of two metres between visitors cannot be guaranteed. However, it is worth visiting the buildings from the outside.

Why are no guided tours offered?
Guided tours cannot be offered at the moment due to the current contact restrictions. Alternatively, however, the Bauhaus Dessau App, the Discovery Booklets or the DrawingKITs offer interesting possibilities to explore the Bauhaus Dessau.

Can I stay overnight in the Studio Building?
Overnight stays in the studio building are not possible at the moment due to strict hygiene regulations. For the time being, it is not possible to say when overnight stays will be permitted again.

Can I eat and drink something in the Café in the Bauhaus Museum Dessau, in the Café-Bistro in the Bauhaus Building or in the canteen in the Bauhaus Building Dessau?
Until further notice, the café in the Bauhaus Museum Dessau, as well as the café-bistro and the canteen in the Bauhaus Building Dessau are closed.

What do I have to consider when travelling to Dessau-Roßlau?
Different regulations for (tourist) trips apply in each country and in each state of the Federal Republic of Germany. Please inform yourself in time about the regulations that apply to you. You can find up-to-date information on the current rules in the state of Saxony-Anhalt here.

How long will these regulations be in place?
These corona-related regulations will apply until further notice. They are set at the political level by the federal and state governments and will be adapted at different intervals. 

Please note that in the case of high incidence rates, the so-called “emergency brake” may be applied by the political authorities. This may result in a short-term closure of the Bauhaus Dessau. Please check the current situation shortly before your visit.
