We went to Villa Tugendhat on a very excited note, as my fiancé is very much interested in modern architecture, but when we reached the ticket office they said only pre-booked tickets allowed. It was such a disappointment. Need to come more prepared! At least we saw the outside!

This is my second tour of this amazing building. The first was 6 months ago, but in Czech so I didn't understand much, I just let myself be blown over by the sheer beauty of the place. This time it was in English, but revisiting it gave me the great satisfaction of knowing that my first impressions were correct; it... More

Can see there Eco houses anywhere! Booked out early but when we arrived we were glad that we hadn't got a ticket anyway.

The story behind this house is so interesting it is easy one of the highlights of our trip to Czech Republic. Well worth the trip and the novel The Glass Room is a must read- historical fiction about this house. Must get reserved tickets.

Recently carefully restored to its' original beauty, this place must not be missed by anybody who likes modern architecture. Make sure to book your visit in long advance. The access is limited to small groups of visitors only and sometimes it takes months to get a ticket. Especially in English or German languages. However, you may visit the garden and... More

A piece of good architecture. Do not forget to book in advance - I took a chance and could see only the gardens.

Fantastic house, with beautiful garden and view over Brno. Good store. To visit the house you must reserve one month before.

The amazingly modern villa of Grete and Fritz Tugendhat was designed by German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1928 and completed in 1930. The place is a true work of art in its construction, layout, interior, setting and technical facilities. The functionalist villa is a unique example of modern international architecture and was listed as a UNESCO World... More

What others also mention: book well in advance. When we visited, we must have been pretty lucky, as we could book for a date less than 2 weeks later. But that was in the early spring. However, when I later planned to take my visiting friend there, I couldn't book an English-language tour for more than a month ahead. So,... More
