canteen and café-bistro
The best places to process impressions or to simply relax. Every day at midday in the canteen, visitors can choose from a selection of four dishes. For those who prefer a small snack or wish to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine in peace, we recommend the souterrain café-bistro.
Canteen – Dine in a Historic Setting
Here in the 1920s the legends of the Bauhaus gathered for lunch, seated on stools designed by Marcel Breuer. In the course of renovation the furniture by Marcel Breuer and the colour design by Hinnerk Scheper were successfully recreated. Today, as a result, visitors can dine in the original ambience. Although the food is substantially different now, back then the menu offered more frugal comforts such as bread with buttermilk.

Kiosk by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Back to the Roots: The Kiosk at the Masters’ Houses
The Kiosk is the only building realised in Dessau by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Even though it survived the war largely intact, it was demolished in the GDR era. In 2014 it returned with the New Masters’ Houses by Berlin-based architects BFM – reduced to pure form as a contemporary interpretation.
In the meantime it fulfils its original function as a kiosk once again. In keeping with the historic tradition, at weekends in the summer months the Kiosk offers freshly squeezed juices, homemade lemonades and a selection of coffee specialities.
The range of products is enhanced by smaples of various regional and international snacks. In the garden of the Gropius House, located behind the Kiosk, inviting shady spots offer an opportunity to relax.
