100 Years of Bauhaus in Weimar - The Centenary Programme for the celebration weeks from 2 to 12 April 2019

In early April 1919, Walter Gropius founded the state Bauhaus in Weimar. To celebrate »100 Years of Bauhaus«, the Weimar institutions have put together two weeks of festivities during which visitors can attend a diverse programme in the city.
