Retro Retreat: Studio flats in the 1920s Prellerhaus Bauhaus Studio Building in Dessau, Germany

Bau1

Want to live the life of an iconic designer in Germany between the wars? You really can do that when you book into the studio flats in the 1920s Prellerhaus Bauhaus Studio Building in Dessau, Germany.

The Studio Building (aka Prellerhaus) dates from 1926 and consisted of 28 studio flats with about 24 sq. metres of space, each one let to masters and students at Bauhaus, including some of the leading lights of the movement.

Each one has now been renovated pretty much as they were, with each one available to let. So if 1920s modernism is your thing, book in – you can also check out the other Bauhaus buildings while you are there. Some room are generally done up in the style, others are personalised to reflect a former habitant, beginning with Alfred Arndt, the couple Albers and Franz Ehrlich. But note all are fairly basics – showers and restrooms were and still are communal and with the building being listed, that isn't going to change.

But it is cheap. Rooms are priced from just 35 Euros.
