The bauhauswoche berlin Festival will showcase projects from numerous actors in the city. The focus is on discovering the ideas of the Bauhaus outdoors and free of charge, for example, by means of shop-window exhibitions or a glass festival centre on the Ernst-Reuter-Platz. Many lectures, guided tours, or even film presentations will be held in parallel.

On the Bauhaus trail
The colourful “Tuschkastensiedlung" (Paint box Housing Estate)nestled in greenery with plenty of light and space or the purist, radiant "White City" settlement – these are some of the authentic Bauhaus sites in Berlin. Most of the UNESCO cultural heritage buildings from the Bauhaus period are located in the capital.
To mark the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus in 2019, the Bauhaus Association designed the Grand Tour of Modernism, which guides architecture fans through Berlin and other German cities.
TIP: with the Berlin WelcomeCard, you will not only receive recommendations but also discounts on guided tours and exhibitions at Berlin Modernism locations.

Overnight stays in the Bauhaus style
Visitors on the Bauhaus trail can also stay overnight in Berlin. Our Bauhaus hotel tips:
Ku'Damm 101
This four-star hotel literally oozes Le Corbusier! This is because the hotel is the only one in Germany that is based on the colour, light, and design principles of the Bauhaus architect and designer Charles-Édouard Jeanneet-Gris – known as Le Corbusier.
zum Event
Hotel Pullman Berlin Schweizerhof
The hotel has been redesigned in the Bauhaus style, combining an avant-garde interior with simple functionality. It also features 377 rooms and suites and the BLEND restaurant as well as a Fit and Spa Lounge with the largest hotel pool in Berlin.
zum Event
SO/ Berlin das Stue
This former embassy has successfully combined old and new in both its exterior and interior. Its interior design, which is somewhat inspired by the Bauhaus style, combines the aesthetics of colour with functionality in Berlin’s first luxury boutique hotel.

Bauhaus for gourmets
Culinary art will also be given due appreciation during the Bauhaus anniversary year. We therefore have some special visitBerlin tips for you when it comes to experiencing Bauhaus with all your senses:
During the bauhauswoche berlin from 31 August to 14 September 2019, many restaurants and snack bars along Kantstrasse and Potsdamer Strasse will be offering special Bauhaus menus, which will be reflected in the style in which they are served as well as in the newly conceived taste combinations.
The DUKE restaurant at the Ellington Hotel is offering a special six-course menu accompanied by wine. It will be prepared by star chef Christian Bau, who describes his distinct style of cooking as an "architectural style".
