Berlin's Bauhaus Archive-Museum

The third and last city in which the Bauhaus schools were located (here, for just one year before Nazi pressure shut it down), it was also home to various movement architects and designers, and the main site here is the distinctive school campus itself in the central Mitte district - now the Bauhaus Museum Archive (above, now being renovated and reopening in May, with a temporary exhibition open to the public in the meantime in Charlottenberg). Other sites include the AEG Turbine Factory, the Mies van der Rohe House, and the Erich Hamann Bittere Schokoladen, a chocolate shop and factory. Finally, a half hour northeast of Berlin, the small city of Bernau is home to the ADGB Trade Union School, the second largest Bauhaus project, meant to train union members in labour law, industry, management, and economics.
