A must see if you visit this second city of Czech Republic. Kids will love it too. My six year old wasn't bored once. Be warned, if going in the summer months, wear shoes as shrink wrapping your child's sandal feet is not a good experience.

It was definitely troublesome to make a booking prior to the trip (and 3PM is a bit of an awkward timing) but it was an absolutely wonderful tour. Will definitely be of interest for those into architecture and interior design!

Something to be seen. Design by the world class architect before the second word war and recently renovated. This is a finest example of the living villas architecture between the wars. Also a historical place where the peaceful division of Czechoslovakia was negotiated. A problem can be to get entry booking as the tickets are limited for each day and... More

You just have to see that and feel the atmoshpere. There is even a bestselling book written, where this Villa is playing a main role. Be sure you dont miss this place when you are in Brno! :-)

Tugendhat Villa in Brno is one of the most famous functionalist villas. The work, which has brought in new elements of modern architecture. It is made from the finest materials. One wall, behind which is a view of Brno, is glassed and can be opened in the summer. The villa was built by industrialist family Tugendhat, who before World War... More

I really aprreciated the time we spent in this amazing house and the garden. History and art of the 20th century is taking place in still modern looking rooms - you can really feel the spirit of this amazing house and of the period of the first Czechoslovakia Republic - when new opportunities for architecture and new ways of living...

Firs of all, you have to book it few months in advance. Then, you will be gouded around a house. Yes, it's a house built for a rich family. The thing is, it was extraordinarily modern whan it was built, has amazing inside-garden and is still economical! But I don't recommend this to most of you. As I wrote in... More

4pm closure last Sunday not 6pm per website - understandably disappointed. When we turned up other bemused visitors outside. If you are going to close early put it on your website

If there is something in Brno that you just HAVE to see, it is Villa Tugendhat. It is incredible example of such a specific architectonic style and there simply are stories bound that you won´t probably believe. But yes, it does have its flaws... You HAVE to make a reservation probably 2 months ahead to get you a spot and... More

I was lucky that a local friend arranged me a ticket for this museum --the waiting list even off-season can be many weeks for the English spoken tours -max 15 pax-, beware! But such an experience. A masterpiece of architect genius Mies van der Rohe, possibly his best work. Beautifully restored and now a UNESCO World Heritage object. Apparently Grete... More
