What does the Visitor Center offer?

Our newly built Visitor Center is located on the Bauhaus Campus Bernau, in the immediate vicinity of the former ADGB Trade Union School, which was built in 1928 to 1930 under the then Bauhaus director Hannes Meyer, the architect Hans Wittwer and with the participation of all Bauhaus workshops.

We invite you to visit our rooms to learn about the eventful and moving history of the construction and use of the Trade Union School (today's UNESCO World Heritage Site Bauhaus in Bernau), to find out more about the architects and Bauhaus students involved in the construction, and to get to know selected pieces of furniture from the original furnishings. The 51 cultural UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Germany are also the subject of our permanent exhibition.

Our guided tours start at the Visitor Center and must be booked in advance online in our ticket shop, by telephone (+49 3338 | 70 6 78 79) or directly on site at the ticket office. In addition, we offer special tours that focus for example on Bauhaus architecture, history or the trade union movement. In order to better understand the entire building ensemble today as well as back then, there will also be the option of a technically supported augmented reality tour in the future.

Special exhibitions, lectures, cinema screenings and workshops for all ages round off our programme.


You are welcome to rent the premises of the Visitor Centre Bernau for your events. The varied exhibition programme, the quiet location in the countryside and the impressive buildings of the former Trade Union School right outside the door make the Visitor Centre Bernau a unique venue for events such as conferences, lecture series, film screenings or readings.
