The two Weimar Universities are celebrating »100 Years of Bauhaus« in their Main Buildings: the »Fürstenhaus« on Platz der Demokratie and the historical founding site of Bauhaus on Geschwister-Scholl-Straße. The celebration will include twenty rooms with multimedia presentations by students, teachers, and members of both Universities. Part of the event will also take place on the Ilm Park path along the Tempelherrenhaus.

The Bauhaus Festival is a symbiosis of art, architecture, media and music, stage and performance – all done in the spirit of the Bauhaus Festivals celebrated by students and Bauhaus masters in the 1920s.

Starting at 6 p.m., the Bauhaus Festival encourages all invitees to take a stroll and rediscover both buildings through, in the words of Walter Gropius, a »Republic of Spirits«.

Come and celebrate »100 Years of Bauhaus« with us!

The Bauhaus Festival of the Weimar Universities is funded by the State Chancellery of Thuringia.
