Masters’ Houses

Only a few minutes walk away from the Bauhaus building, you will find the Dessau Masters’ Houses designed for their first occupants to live and work in - the famous Bauhaus Masters Kandinsky, Klee, Muche, Schlemmer, Moholy-Nagy, Feininger and the Houses’ architect itself Gropius. The House Feininger is seat of the Kurt Weill Centre.

In May 2014 the new Masters’ Houses Gropius and Moholy-Nagy were reconstructed and opened to the public by the Federal President Joachim Gauck.
