As the site of the original school, this small city in eastern Germany's Saxony-Anhalt state (90 minutes southwest of Berlin and an hour north of Leipzig) naturally became the incubator for Bauhaus design - starting with the school building itself (you can even spend the night in one of its dorm rooms), and including other 1920s structures such as the Meisterhäuser, the residences of senior staff (including this reconstructed home of Gropius); the Dessau-Törten Estate of public housing; the Stahlhaus (Steel House); the Fieger Haus; the Kornhaus traditional German restaurant on the bank of the Elbe River; and the Arbeitsamt (employment office), now housing the Public Security and Regulations Authority). There's also a newish Bauhaus Museum, opened in 2019..
