This is a really interesting building a short walk from the centre of Brno. We didn't plan ahead & they only permit 15 people per tour of the villa. It was fully booked when we arrived. Luckily our guide book said that these limits did not apply to the gardens. But we had to ask to visit the gardens. The... More

This beautiful functionalist and famous villa was only recently brought to its former glory. We were amazed by how state-of-the-art this villa was, including air conditioning and window manipulation mechanisms. You get to see everything. Do not forget to listen to the history - a lot of exciting things happened during world war II and after with this house. Unfortunately,... More

Something what is not common. Almost 100 years ago somebody did building, which is modern art forever. Just perfect.

You can't visit Brno and not visit the Tugendhat Villa, it'd be like going to Pisa and omitting the tower. An architectural gem, and a fascinating tour of both the lived-in upper quarters and the steamship-like lower technical rooms.

It is an amazing place. Wonderful art deco style, wonderful history, wonderful views of Brno. Need to buy tickets on line and book a time slot. It takes about an hour to visit.

Villa is on UNESCO list and is really worth a visit. I recommend booking tickets in advance. We read on their web page about booking but we choose not to . As a result only one place was free (up to 15 people in a group) so the other person had to wait in the villas garden. Our guide was... More

In my opinion this is the #1 reason to visit Brno. The house is amazing and has recently undergone a huge renovation. (And considering its history there were many things that needed fixing.) Excellent English language tour of the house. You can enjoy the gardens before or after your tour Note that all visitors have to apply shrink wrap to... More

We were lucky enough to get tickets to have a tour of this place. Not to be missed! Although the spoken tour is only in Czech there is a very comprehensive leaflet in English covering the same content. The house is lovely, with lots of interesting features.

A visit to the Tugendhat villa is a must when in Brno. It was the highlight of our visit. You must book the tour in advance and they are available in many languages. The tour is good value for money and lasts around an hour depending on which tour u choose. The building has been lovingly renovated with a great... More

I think I've learned about Tugendhat sometime during art class in high school, and was never really bothered by its bauhaus architecture. I was reminded of its existence when I decided to go to Brno. I decided to visit the villa after having visited the other highlights of Brno, and was pleasantly surprised. Doing a tour of the house requires... More
