The Bauhaus Monument Bernau and Its Residents

The UNESCO World Heritage Site Bauhaus Monument Bernau is managed by several partners who attend to its various affairs.

The owner and operator of the Meyer-Wittwer-Bau (the historic ADGB Trade Union School) is the Berlin Chamber of Crafts. They took over the building in 2001. After extensive renovation and reconstruction work (2002–2007), the former Trade Union School has since been used as a boarding school for trainees at the Berlin Chamber of Crafts.

Since its founding on May 4, 1990, the association baudenkmal bundesschule bernau e. V. has been engaged in the preservation of and academic research into the current UNESCO World Heritage Site and its adjacent buildings.

The Baudenkmal Bundesschule Bernau Foundation was founded in 2011 through the efforts of the city of Bernau bei Berlin, the County of Barnim, Sparkasse Bank Barnim, the Berlin Chamber of Crafts, and the association baudenkmal bundesschule bernau e. V. Its mission is to promote the collection, research, and presentation of all aspects of the Bauhaus Monument Bernau.
