Brno is known for its abundance of excellent modernist architecture. The Tugendhat Villa should be the starting point for any explorations of Brno's modernist heritage. The Villa is one of the last European works of Mies van der Rohe before he fled to the US to escape the Nazis. Today it is so popular that you need to book at... More

One of the most impressive buildings in Moravia. Very succesfull reconstruction was done one year ago. World known historic building from the beginning of 20th century. Must see when being in Brno or Moravia.

Book in advance and go for the full tour - it is worth it. A wonderful piece of architecture and a great tour. It was the highlight of our stay there. Bit miffed the £10 charge pp didn't allow you take photos - that was extra. Guides may vary, but ours was very good

This house stays with you, it was just glorious. Our tour was in Czech but it mattered not, language not needed to appreciate this building. For anybody who likes modern architecture this is a must and the story of the occupants makes it a place of sadness and triumph.

The Villa was our reason for visiting Brno, prompted by reading Simon Mawer's 'The Glass Room', and it was worth every mile of the journey.

One of the masterpiece of XX century in a place far from where people usually look for them. A stunning villa restored (in a certa in way it would be better saying "rebuilt") with rigorous method. You have to book in (large) advance...

The English tour was excellent. This iconic modern house has been restored magnificently and is full of interest. But you must book well in advance. We got the last 2 places on our tour 2 months before our visit.

This building is not even a century old but holds a lot of history as well as being a Mies van der Rohe showpiece. The floating structure, where metal pillars rather than walls provide stability, means this is a stunningly open space, even now still breathtaking to come onto the main floor and enter all that light. I visited first... More

Unbelievably advanced and beautiful architecture. Very clean lines, beautiful materials and quality craftsmanship. Great system - the architect Mies van der Rohe really thought each little detail, from the living room to the boiler room. You just need to book at least a month in advance. And if you are an architecture freak, book the tour with utility rooms.
