We've been on the road traveling the world for nearly two years and we just love to discover unique places with a great story like Dessau Rosslau in Germany. We came here to take a peek at the Bauhaus architectural sites and to be in touch with its original creations. What a pleasant experience!
The Bauhaus Group was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919, but moved successfully to Dessau in 1925 for political reasons. This brilliant group of architects, artists and designers brought to the world a new and radical approach that reflects functionality and modernity which translates into great sophistication still nowadays.
You can visit many buildings and the Master houses where they also hold some exhibitions. When in town, do not skip visiting the Kornhaus Restaurant, one of the largely intact Bauhaus buildings in town. Also when in town, you can rent a bike at Becker's Radhaus and ride it to the attractions.
The city is nice and has a calm pace, adding lots of nature and great hiking spots. The River Elbe offers great views and nice Kayak opportunities to complete the great mix of art, beauty, nature and functionality.
