-Modern design, even for today, although it was built in 1930. -Very good guided tour with lots of informations about everything in the villa. -Must visit attraction for architects and decorators. -For the rest of us it is not really an attraction. In 1930 it was something extraordinary but in 2016? I really prefer the center of Brno with its... More

This wonderful building has been beautifully restored. The extended tour - in English - takes visitors through all parts, from the modest street frontage through the extraordinary living space to the basement, including a demonstration of the retractable plate glass. Essential to book well in advance - try email if no tour availability shown on website: staff are very quick... More

Its hard to believe this building was built in 1928, it would sit alongside the most modern buildings of today, it has so many designs that are on the "want" list nowadays when building. the views from each room are incredible.Brno are very proud and rightly so of this building. It has a sad history due to Nazi invasion

Sorry but I can't understand why it is attraction, just a modern house... nothing special. I understand that it was designed in 1920-1930s and in those times it was unusual but still I cant see any reason why to go and see this building, if you are not professional architecture or designer who may love such kind of things.

Although this villa is probably the main reason some people visit Brno, it is still worth mentioning and recommending. It is amazing how it looks like after the reconstruction - and although it has been re-opened for a while now, you could still wait in line for the entrance, so plan in advance if you would like to visit this...

The inside must be good as the garden wasn't worth it. It was grass and a few white flowers. The villa wasn't amazing on the outside, just a bit Art Deco and functional. It could have been made by IKEA. Not that exciting.

This was the main reason I visited Brno and I was not disappointed. This meticulously restored functionalist family home by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is a must. Book tours online in advance.

It is unbelievable to see a Villa of about 80 years ago that still now would be seen as very modern, especially for Czech standards. If you know the history of the Villa it is impressive it is still there. But very strange is you have to reserve the visit around 2 months ahead and the surrounding because of reconstruction...

Go here if you want to see a true modern masterpiece. I truely felt I was watching one of the most beautiful art piece I have ever seen. And it's history is also fascinating from the project through the 2nd WW to the UNESCO. The only (but severe) downside is the mandatory reservation for the inside visit which can be... More
