The visitor service will be happy to assist you on site. Please use the bell at the entrance to Haus Gropius, Ebertallee 59.

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.
