Bauhaus an der Havel

The Bauhaus an der Havel is a holiday apartment in a classical modernist building located directly on the riverbank of the Havel and overlooking the island town of Werder. Architect Peter Bartning, brother of Otto Bartning who co-developed the Bauhaus concept, built the house in 1932 for an artist couple as a studio and pottery workshop.

At the time of its construction, the house was considered extremely modern. It was restored to its original state and extended by an annex in the late 1990s. Then, in 2017, the studio on the first floor was converted into a holiday apartment. Its 52 sqm feature an open kitchen with a dining area, a living area overlooking the river and Werder’s church, and a bedroom with an adjoining bathroom. The apartment also boasts a 20 sqm roof terrace. And if you want to get even closer to the water, the boat dock will be your favorite place.

What to do

Swimming, paddling, sailing, SUP (equipment for 2 people is available), horse riding, hiking, cycling, old town of Werder with its restaurants and cafes, trips to Potsdam and Berlin (15 and 35 minutes away by train).

Why we like this house

An oasis for two in a great location: right on the water, near the old town of Werder and the city of Berlin is within easy reach.

This house is great for

Single travellers, couples, and even long-term tenants.

  2. Wir hatten ein wunderbares Wochenende in Werder – vielen Dank. Die Wohnung ist mit allem eingerrichtet, was man braucht, der Ausblick vom Wohnzimmer auf Kirche und Mühle einfach wunderschön. Die Dachterasse mit Sonnenliegen, der hübsch angelegte Garten und besonders auch der hauseigene Bootssteg mit Tisch und Sitzgelegenheiten machten unseren Aufenthalt unvergesslich.
