Preview: The Hardenberg House

Due to construction work expanding and modernising the Bauhaus-Archiv, the museum in Klingelhöferstraße will be closed from 30 April 2018. In the summer of 2018 a Bauhaus information centre featuring a gallery, event area and the bauhaus-shop will open in the Hardenberg House. The Hardenberg House is a listed building designed by the architect Paul Schwebes, and it is considered one of the most important office and commercial buildings of post-war modernism in West Berlin .

At our Bauhaus information centre we inform you about the activities surrounding the Bauhaus centenary in 2019, the museum annex and our current events.


Its events related to architecture and design will make the Hardenberg House an important site for Berlin’s creative scene.


Our gallery spaces in the Hardenberg House are characterised by an open structure. Here we use exhibitions to make design processes and museum work tangible for visitors and are opening a location for contemporary projects.

Big changes are coming!

Since 30 April 2018 the museum is unfortunately closed, so that construction work on the renovation and expansion can begin.
The bauhaus-shop and cafe will remain open in May. Opening Times bauhaus-shop: daily, except on Tuesdays, 10 am - 5 pm, Café: Mon-Fri, 10 am - 5 pm.

In the summer of 2018 the Bauhaus-Archiv will open a new project space in the rooms formerly occupied by the Kiepert bookshop in the Hardenberg House located at the corner of Knesebeckstraße and Hardenbergstraße. There we will inform you about all of our institution’s projects and continue to maintain contact with our visitors while the construction work is carried out. The bauhaus-shop also looks forward to greeting you there in future.
