The Bauhaus Dessau Foundation welcomes you and would like to offer all guests a self-determined, informative and eventful visit.
At the Bauhaus Building itself, we have a large visitor car park with a signposted disabled parking space. Visitors with reduced mobility should use the south side of the building, also accessible from Gropiusallee.
Travelling by public transport
The main railway station in Dessau-Roßlau is only about 700 metres away from the Bauhaus Dessau. The platforms are equipped with lifts. To reach the Bauhaus building, please take the west exit in the direction of Ziebigk onto Bauhausstraße. From here, follow the signs to Bauhaus Dessau.
You can reach the public transport and taxi rank via the exit in the direction of the city centre.
Use the bicycle garage next to the Bauhaus Building. It is open daily from 8 am to 6 pm from March to October. The bicycle garage has space for 38 bicycles.
In addition, three of the 15 lockers are equipped with two sockets each, which are ideal for charging your e-bike batteries. The lockers can be closed with 1-euro and 2-euro coins.
Please note: Outside of these opening hours, only overnight guests with a key can use the bicycle garage.
There is a public Bauhaus bus to connect the Bauhaus buildings.
The Dessau public transport company offers all visitors the “Bauhaus Bus, Line 10”, which connects all Bauhaus buildings. Further information can be found here.
There is a barrier-free entrance on the south side of the basement of the Bauhaus Building.
There is a barrier-free toilet on the south side of the base floor of the Bauhaus Building.
The canteen is accessible via a ramp in the assembly hall.
Accessibility “Bauhaus for all”
The historic Bauhaus buildings are not as barrier-free as the Bauhaus Museum Dessau, which opened in 2019, due to heritage regulations and conservation restrictions.
The Bauhaus Museum Dessau has been tested and certified with the Accessibility Seal of Approval in accordance with the criteria of the Travel for All project.
Despite this certification, however, we are still in the middle of the process of becoming a barrier-free, inclusive cultural venue for all.
Our visitor service colleagues will be happy to advise you on all the details and plan your individual visit with you:

Together with LunA – Leipzig and Autismus e.V., the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation has developed documents that enable people on the autism spectrum to visit the museum in a self-determined way. The Sensory Friendly seal characterises an environment that is designed with the social and sensory sensitivities of people on the autism spectrum in mind. Particular attention is paid to flexible forms of communication, predictability and minimisation of external stimuli.
