Your visit

Visit the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and learn about the details and background of the early Bauhaus in Weimar, the university’s eventful past and the study opportunities at today’s Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. There are numerous ways to familiarise yourself with the university and its campus.

Want to learn more about the university’s historical roots and the history of the Bauhaus founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar back in 1919? We offer several Bauhaus walking tours every week during which students guide visitors through the buildings designed by Henry van de Velde. Built between 1904 and 1911, the historical building ensemble has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996. Walter Gropius’ director’s office along with wall reliefs and murals by Oskar Schlemmer and Herbert Bayer can be visited.

Here you will find all Bauhaus Walk times and prices.

The »Bauhaus.Atelier | Info Shop Café« is the central meeting point for all visitors to the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Student staff members inform about the university and the café invites you to linger a while longer in relaxed surroundings. Our shop is located in the former animal painting studio: countless art and design books as well as university products can be discovered here. Browse our selection of unusual souvenirs, some of which were designed by alumni.
