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.

Seen in May 2014, booked in December 2013 - it is necessary to book it at least a month in advance!!! Czech guide. Best time to start at 10 am - you are the only one in the villa:) 2 types of tours - 60 and 90 minutes (I recommed the longer one with the technical facilities). Small groups -... More

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.

Luckily for tourists there is an English tour, which you won't find a lot in Czech republic. The villa is very beautiful in its' simplicity and quite modern to its time. The tour takes quite a long time comparing to the size of the villa, and you will know all about the architect, the family and the situation during the... More

The Villa is a triumph of the modern movement, breathtakingly special. The ideas, space and design of the villa are a triumph.

We were quite lucky, because the weather was nice (you have to plan the visit several weeks in advance) and the garden was blooming. There was also installation of self-playing piano in the garden (set of strings connected to piano that acts as an amplifier - operated by wind or by set of little motors). Enough with exteriors, let's move... More

Book well in advance as tickets are as rare as hen's teeth, but well worth it. A must-see, even if you only see the outside. It is in a beautiful residential area and a short walk from Lužánky park up the spectacular Schodová street. Enjoy!

This place is definitely worth seeing. It is very interesting when you find out that this is something that is architectural designed in 1920s and even today looks modern. Also it is interesting that this is the place where it is signed bilateral agreement about separation Czechoslovakia in 1993
