Haus Am Horn

For the first major Bauhaus Exhibition in Weimar in 1923, a model house was built in only four months in the road "Am Horn" and went down in architectural history as the "Haus Am Horn". The model house designed by Georg Muche was seen as a prototype of "New Living", since here the revolutionary ideas of the Bauhaus were implemented in specially designed architecture for the first time. All the rooms are small, functional and grouped around a central living room with a skylight. The house had one of the first fitted kitchens, central heating, a gas water heater, bottom-hung windows and fitted cupboards.

The Bauhaus was the most important art school in the 20th century, founded on 1 April 1919 when Walter Gropius was appointed as its principal. With this building, it created its only architectural memorial in Weimar.

UNESCO World Heritage Site

The "Haus Am Horn" is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site entitled "The Bauhaus and its venues in Dessau and Weimar", which had a decisive influence on the architecture of 20th century.
