Dessau is famous for its college of architecture Bauhaus, which moved to Dessau in 1925, after it had been forced to close in Weimar.
Many famous artists were lecturers in Dessau, among them Walter Gropius, Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky.
In 1931, the Nazis forced the closure of the Bauhaus, and it was not reopened until 1986.


In 1895 Hugo Junkers founded Junkers-Motorenbau GmbH und Junkers-Flugzeugwerk AG, which, in its early days, manufactured boilers and radiators, and then pioneered all-metal aircraft, beginning with the Junkers J 1 mid-wing monoplane.
Hugo Junkers was forced to transfer all his patents to the Nazis, who doubted that he would comply with their plans.
During World War II, the company produced some of the most successful Luftwaffe planes, as well as piston and jet aircraft engines
The company manufactured the Junkers Ju 86 bomber, the four-engine Junkers Ju 89 heavy bomber, the Junkers Ju 88 light bomber, and the Junkers Ju 87 Stuka dive bomber,
