Bauhaus in North Rhine-West­phalia

Osthaus, Al­bers & van der Rohe

In the high population cities, which at that time were undergoing a period of expansion, the Bauhaus concept and its preliminary and branch movements, as well as the developments that came after it, made a stronger impact on architecture and urban building than in almost any other federal state in Germany. Here, many examples of the “Neues Bauen” (“new building”) can be seen.

From the so-called “Bauhaus Dreiklang” (“Bauhaus triad”) cities - Essen, Hagen and Krefeld - to other interesting sites of this design movement that had a worldwide impact, NRW invites visitors on a journey of discovery. We are the Bauhaus state.
