The Town

Welcome to Dessau-Roßlau

Dessau-Roßlau is neither a glittering metropolis nor one of those cute towns with old and winding streets, which are supposedly easy to understand. Dessau-Roßlau really wants to be discovered.

All the highlights await you here – a visit to the Bauhaus, an excursion to the Dessau-Wörlitz Garden Realm, comfortable accommodation for a short trip, venues for meetings, concerts and events, expert tour guides, regional maps, literature about the region and tourist souvenirs. The Tourist Information Office staff in Dessau-Roßlau will be glad to help you.

Get to know Dessau better with a guided tour. The Tourist Information Centre offers several thematic, English-language guided tours. The Bauhaus and the Masters’ Houses can also be viewed as part of an English-speaking tour.
