"Bauhaus, in Dessau, a 100 km..." Outside Berlin Tip by stijn_swinne

Outside Berlin, Berlin: 32 reviews and 45 photos

Bauhaus, in Dessau, a 100 km from out of Berlin. Bauhaus is the famous art style and school from

1919-1930. The art was very shocking with it's very simple and rational designs in it's furniture,

textile, architecture. It's designs are still called modern at present time. When visiting Bauhaus you

should always keep in mind that the designs were made in the years 1920-1930. Compare the tables,

chairs, spoons, architecture with the style you know like at your grandmothers house... You will

certainly feel that these were really shocking for some people. Bauhaus dissapeared in Dessau with the

due to the upcoming Nazi success. The school closed in 1933, many intellectuals fled to the United

States of America (Bauhaus is very known in Chicago, see the flats, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe)
