Architectural Adventures: Bauhaus and Beyond

Architectural Adventures: Bauhaus and Beyond

Experience the legendary Bauhaus movement on the brink of its 100th anniversary on this ten-day tour with Architectural Adventures. The Bauhaus is arguably the world's most influential school of design, revolutionizing 20th-century design, art, and architecture the world over. Founded in Weimar, Germany by Walter Gropius in 1919, the Bauhaus' activities spanned 14 years, and was relocated to Dessau and later Berlin.

Learn about the legacy and impact of this innovative and bold movement by visiting the original Bauhaus buildings and touring remarkable museum collections and exhibitions in the three iconic Bauhaus cities. For the last four days of the tour, explore Berlin's renowned historical and contemporary architecture, including several UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Museum Island and the Siemensstadt Housing Estate and see how the city continues to simultaneously honor the past while looking to the future.
