National Launch of the Grand Tour of Modernism on 2 May 2019 in Bernau

The Grand Tour of Modernism combines architectural learning with the sensual experience of travel and literally grasping history and contemporaneity. The Bauhaus and Modernism sites selected by a jury have been linked to form a tour that can be completed by train, car or bicycle. We would like to invite you to the launch, where you can find out more about the Grand Tour of Modernism.
