“For those interested in design furniture, a MUST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

I really do like the furniture produced by VITRA, for example my beloved aluminium chair. This place is where it was produced and it has a very special atmosphere. The design exhibits are really nice and I think most people will spot something new there. Next to the Design Museum there is also a place where vitra pieces are exposed. The buildings of the complex are all most interesting because they were designed by world - known architects.

“Great day out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

A day at the Vitra campus in Weil-am-Rhein is very inspirational. The beautiful building by world-renowned architects are a must see for architecture lovers. But one can also enjoy a perfect picnic in the ground. The shop is a great place for souvenirs; there's always a surprise.

“Must visit for design and architecture fans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Am not an architect and was positively surprised by the tour. If like like architecture the site has some treasures , especially the fire house that is more of a design masterpiece than a fire house. Not for children.

We made a mistake and ordered lunch at the cfeteria

“i love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

it suits for family who carry with little children.
you can sit, draw, and play in this wonderful and creative museum with children. At the same time. they can learn colors and design from the furniture.
it's worthy spending a whole afternoon there.
but it's a little far away from city center, you need drive or rent an auto there.
