Bauhaus, Art Nouveau and a lot more

An architectural tour

At the beginning of the 20th century, two talented architects enriched Weimar and Jena with their designs.

It was Henry van de Velde from Belgium, who recommended Walther Gropius to become his successor when leaving Weimar. Gropius opened the Bauhaus-school in 1919 and developed a complete new architecture in his office. It should be solid, cheap and of course beautiful.

In Jena, we have two of only six private houses designed in his office. Convince yourself of the huge contrast between art-nouveau-houses and the Bauhaus-ones nearby! I will also show you the traces of his students and companions in Jena.

Eventually enjoy the gentle connection between the two architectural styles while seeing Henry van de Velde’s Ernst-Abbe-Memorial.
