In the framework of a one-hour tour of the Bauhaus Building, built in 1926, visitors discover historic spaces that are usually closed to the public. These include the auditorium, the former director’s room and a historic student’s room. Should some areas be inaccessible due to public or other events, we ask for your understanding and will ensure that this is then appropriately recompensed with an alternative route.

The complex of Masters' Houses, built based on plans by Walter Gropius, exemplifies the avant-garde concept of living and epitomises the artists' colony of the 20th century. Walter Gropius, Oskar Schlemmer, Georg Muche, László Moholy-Nagy, Lyonel Feininger, Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee lived with their families in the Masters' Houses. The one-hour guided tour begins in the Visitor Centre in the Bauhaus Building (Gropiusallee 38, 06846 Dessau-Roßlau, Germany).
