Former School of Arts and Crafts

The completion of the renovation work not only marks the return of a unique architectural landmark to Weimar, but also one of the city's most significant UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Situated near the main building of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar the Van-de-Velde building is the place where Walter Gropius founded the State Bauhaus in Weimar in 1919. Its historic significance led UNESCO to formally recognize the art school buildings in Weimar, along with the Haus am Horn, as a World Heritage Site in 1996.
