“Modernist Masterpiece that's not to be missed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Simply amazing! Mies van der Rohe, designer of the revolutionary 1929 Barcelona Pavilion, created this residential modernist masterpiece (the first residential use of the Barcelona Chair) - and it is as extraordinary today as when it was completed in 1930. The story of the home, which reopened in 2012 following extensive restoration, and the Tugendhat family is both tragic and inspiring. Make every effort to visit. But, plan ahead - reservations are required and the English language tours fill up weeks in advance. About the rating - the residence is Excellent, but the tour we had was average.

“Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Must to see if you like modern architecture, World Heritage Site. One of the best buildings by Mies van der Rohe, which was recently perfectly reconstructed. You must book to visit on the website well in advance as the number of visitors is limited.

“Fine example of modern architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This is modern architecture at its very best with clean, simple lines. It's an impressive villa with big gardens that are pleasant to relax in too.

“Must see in Brno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

There are not so many places to visit in Brno but Tugendhat is definitely one of the most incredible ones. As mentioned on their webpage it "is an installed monument to Modern architecture". It is a unique building with interesting history being restored in the past few years. You better book the ticket at least 1 month in advance.
