Stay overnight at the Bauhaus – Stay in a World Cultural Heritage Site

A very special kind of Bauhaus experience awaits visitors here: overnight accommodation in the studio building. In the recreated studios, the atmosphere of the Bauhaus remains palpable today. Everything from the floor plan and the materials to replicas of the original furniture has been returned to its original state in meticulous detail. Some rooms evoke their former inhabitants by virtue of the furniture designs: selected rooms are currently dedicated to the Bauhauslers Alfred and Gertrud Arndt, Josef and Anni Albers and Franz Ehrlich.

The studio building completed in 1926 is also known as the Prellerhaus. The name was adopted from the studio building in Weimar and commemorates the court painter Friedrich Preller. A succession of the most renowned figures of the Bauhaus era lived and worked in the 28 studios, each of which measures around 20 m2. These included, among others, Josef Albers, Erich Consemüller, Herbert Bayer, Franz Ehrlich, Walter Peterhans, Hannes Meyer, Joost Schmidt, Marcel Breuer and, on the so-called ladies floor, Gertrud Arndt, Marianne Brandt, Gunta Stölzl and Anni Albers.

Current visitor information
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in 2019, extensive renovation work will take place at the Bauhaus in Dessau this autumn, which will also significantly affect our guest house (studio building), so that we will not accept bookings for overnight stays until the end of the year. You are welcome to book an overnight stay from January 2019.
