For something to do in Berlin, the Bauhaus school (1919-33) had a massive influence on modern design. Famous members and lecturers included Mies van der Rohe, Klee, Kandinsky and Schlemmer. A comprehensive history of the school can be found in this architecturally stunning building, which opened in 1979. Designed by founder Walter Gropius, it looks a little like the smokestacks on an ocean liner. The collection includes furniture, ceramics, prints, sculptures, photographs and sketches created in the workshop by the likes of Gropius, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Oskar Schlemmer, Marcel Breuer and many others before being shut down by the Nazis. The Bauhaus Archive also houses a library and a document centre, and if you’re lucky you’ll catch László Moholy-Nagy’s kinetic sculpture combining colour, light and movement, though it’s not always on display.
