The Bauhaus Monument Bernau is a fascinating site of architectural modernity. Visitors can explore the architectural ensemble on their own from the outside at any time. At eleven locations, external information panels with short texts and photos provide information and a glimpse into the 90-year history of the Trade Union School. To supplement and enhance this walking tour, a free pamphlet is attached to the site plans at two entrances to the campus.
The former ADGB Trade Union School, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "The Bauhaus and its sites in Weimar, Dessau and Bernau" since 2017, is now used by the Berlin Chamber of Crafts as a boarding school for trainees. It is a living monument. Therefore, visitors can only enter and explore the premises of the building when accompanied by one of our guides on a pre-booked tour. Our guided Bauhaus tours usually take place on Thursdays and Sundays at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. You can book your tour here.
The meeting point for our guided Bauhaus tours is the teacher housing at #9 Hannes-Meyer-Campus, the headquarters of the association baudenkmal bundesschule bernau e. V. At this location we are currently showing the exhibition "SCHOOL IN THE WOODS" – 1928 UNTIL TODAY in which the artists Natalie Obert and Julia Herfurth engage with the eventful history of use and construction of the Trade Union School, supplemented with historical building materials and everyday objects from the association’s collection.
