Bauhaus Museum and Neues Museum Weimar

Little “Bauhäusler” will take you through the brand-new Bauhaus Museum and the Neues Museum Weimar. They will introduce you to objects that were considered very “modern” back then and which you might recognise today.

The special thing about this media guide is that your parents can download it on their smartphone as an app before your visit. Not only does it include the tour of the museums, but also lots of interesting facts and information.

Flemar, the bat, accompanies you on a thrilling excursion underground. Flemar tells you fascinating stories about how layers of stone were formed, and important events of Weimar’s history.

After your tour of the Park Cave, you can continue your expedition through the park and into the city.
