Grand Tour of Modernism

All across Germany are outstanding sites of the Bauhaus and modernism – all of which is landmark architecture that has profoundly changed our understanding of life, work, learning and dwelling. From north to south, from east to west: The Grand Tour of Modernism links significant and accessible buildings to guide visitors through one hundred years of the history of modern architecture from 1900 to 2000. Their broad spectrum spans individual buildings and settlements, icons and objects of debate, key buildings and unknown works.


The list below includes all the places that are presented on the Grand Tour of Modernism website.
Black: Sites of the Grand Tour of Modernism. These are open and accessible to tourists, meaning they can be viewed from outside and most can be visited inside during opening hours.
Grey plus padlock: Additional sites built between 1900 and 2000, which are not open to the public. These outstanding buildings will be part of “100 Years of Architectural History between 1900 and 2000”, a digital presentation that will be accessible on this website beginning in April 2019.
