A museum dedicated to one of the most important design movements in the 20th century, Bauhaus.

The design museum is located in central Berlin. The Museum is dedicated to show the history about the Bauhaus School in 1919-1933, which was crucial to architecture, design and art both then and also now.

At the museum there are various exhibition that changes. But they also have a small permanent exhibition that shows architecture, funitures, cheramics, photography and more by some of the leading Bauhaus icons such as: Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger, Vasily Kadinsky, Josef Albers, Oskar Schlemmer, László Moholy-Nagy og Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

The museum supposedly has one of the biggest collections of Bauhaus designs in the world. So I was a little disappointed when we arrived and it only was a very small part that is actually on exhibit. However, there are always various exhibitions, lectures, workshops and concerts, so it is always a good idea to keep an eye on the program on the museum’s website.

What was not disappointing, was the great architecture of the museum by Walter Gropius. There was also a small café and we stayed a while hanging out around the small courtyard in the sun. After, we went to the Tiergarten (right next to the museum) to have lunch and play in the garden.
