The Haus Rabe CODE will prepare you for your visit to this extraordinary piece of Bauhaus heritage.

Let the interaction between architecture, colour and interior furnishings work its magic on you, be conscious of its uniqueness and take your memories home with you!

“The building used to be a normal residential house, so it‘s natural not to go in with dirty shoes.”


Our Haus Rabe Shop offers a small selection of printed products and literature on the building. You can also buy the specially made Haus Rabe slippers and take them home with you as a souvenir. By buying the products, you support the preservation of the house and the work of the Foundation.


Lignite surface mining in Zwenkau started in 1921. The larger the mining area to the north and east of Zwenkau became, however, the more areas had to make way for it. The last coal train left the site in 1999. The huge area was flooded and eventually became a lake.

The lake known as Zwenkauer See is now the largest of the new lakes in the Leipzig area. Cape Zwenkau sprang up on the banks of the lake, and with it a residential estate whose architecture has given a completely new appearance to what used to be mining country.
