The Bauhaus is a must when you visit Dessau! It's a well organised and bespoke place with knowledgeable guides who tell you about its impressive past. Dessau as my home town used to flourish during East German regime. Very sad to see the city being...More

Choose an audio guide in English. DIY visit as English tour guides not so informative and/or well spoken. You see more alone. Do your visit to the main building when you are there.

This is a must-see place for architecture fans although it would have been interesting to find out more about the individuals involved at the beginning, especially the women. And they only vaguely explained why they had to leave Weimar.

The external structure and complex is lovely. However the standing display was really poor considering the collection they must have. It seems they are planning a new museum for the future and this may be why the exhibits are so limited. If so they should...More
