Discover The Bauhaus Germany

One of Germany's most amazing artistic hallmarks is the Bauhaus, a school of architecture and applied arts. Set up in 1919 in Weimar, it had an immense influence on modern architecture and graphic arts. The founding principle of this school was to respond to the needs of the community with an absence in distinction between the fine arts and home-made products. The Bauhaus style was mainly characterised by the lack of embellishments. Several painters, such as Klee or Kandinsky, taught in this school. When the Nazis closed down the school in 1933, a good number of its members emigrated to the United States where the values and principles of Bauhaus dominated art and architecture for several decades. Do not miss out on the excellent museum dedicated to this movement in Berlin.
