  • Another item in the list of world heritage sites. Actually, this fact and encouraged us to visit the attractions. Roughly speaking, "for show" visited here. Can't say that impressed. Open daily from 10 till 5:00 pm, entrance tickets cost 7.5 euros. There is the audioguide (€ 5) in seven languages, but Russian among these seven no.

  • Great place you have to visit in your life.
  • A must see! Be sure to get a guided tour to experience how lectures, student living and the directors room were.
  • If you like or are interested in Bauhaus, you NEED to see this. Good exhibit and great gift shop.
  • Must see for all architecture lovers. Beautiful buildings.
  • Intersting experience being there and sleeping in the same room where used to sleep big names of Bauhaus.
