Snooze fest!
May 2021 • Couples
I’ve had better days out in IKEA. At least there you could sit on the chairs. If you sport a man bun, salmon pink shorts, and a white linen shirt, I’m sure you’ll have great fun discussing the originality of the carpets and the inner-workings of the boiler room. Thank goodness we were wearing masks lest we be seen yawning. Beware: escaping is easier said than done.

For a tour you have to book almost a year in advance. But you can visit the garden without a reservation. You can have a peek into the main rooms of the house from the outside. In the bookshop you can have a look at the original drawings.

Order tickets 6 months before your visit

We were really looking forward to visiting this villa following the book and the movie. Upon arrival we learned that we had to order tickets 6 months in advance. Still we were able to visit the gardens and the basement which were really disappointing. Do NOT feel obliged to visit this villa!

One of the 20th century’s great architectural homes, now beautifully restored
Mar 2020
Book in advance for the insightful 1.5 hour tour of this early Miles van der Rohe masterpiece. You’ll struggle to believe its 90 years old this year, with aircon before anyone heard of aircon?

Fully booked

It's annoying that it's fully booked for the rest of the year. I'm sure they could handle the demand with more tours.

Dear visitor, thank you for your review, we understand you're dissappointment, however the capacity limitation for tours is not a management decision, but by a request of monument preservation. The interiors of the villa were renewed between 2010-2012 into the original condition, using same materials like in 1930s and there where the originals are conservated, they were restored. The house was designed as a family villa and therefore the interiors can't be accessible in an unlimited way. The rule of 16 persons/group, maximum 8 tours per day is the maximum capacity the house can afford without being substantially damaged. Please keep this in mind when reviewing the site. We would be happy to accomodate all our visitors and it's not our goal to decline reservations, however we want to preserve the house for future generations. Thank you for understanding! With best regards Petr Dvořák, PR manager, Villa Tugendhat.

Fully booked for rest of the year
Aug 2019 • Solo
The guided tours of the interiors are fully booked for the rest of 2019. You can pay 50 koruna to stroll through the gardens and take a break, but you'll not be able to appreciate what the fuss is all about.

Buzz on the 'cash desk' button on the pillar out in the front to gain entry.

The neighborhood is beautiful though. Worth a short visit, if you want to tick it off your list.

Gardens only
Jul 2019 • Couples
There is a 4 month waiting list to do the indoor tour, so we just walked up to see the location but discovered the gardens can be entered for 50Kc so took advantage of that. Much of the interior of the house can be seen through the windows, including the famous onyx wall. There is a small souvenir shop in the basement. If going there on foot from the city centre direction (Drobneho) be aware there is a long series of steps to climb up on Schodova.

We will visit again!
May 2019 • Couples
Having read 'The Glass Room' (and if you haven't read it, we recommend you do before you go!), we were very keen to visit Villa Tugendhat. It was brilliant to see the house and learn more about the real family behind it. The house has been restored perfectly and we found it breathtakingly beautiful. The entrance fee is reasonable so we accepted the pricey photo licence and did not regret it. Wear sensible shoes - you have to cover your shoes in shrink-plastic (it's quite fun) to protect the floors, and I am not sure if they would let you wear heels. The tour was good - our guide Lucaz was very clear, helpful and informative. We really liked the fact that we were not rushed around, but instead had time to admire the furniture and take in the light and the spaces. The onyx wall was amazing. Thank you Lucaz!

We'd also like to add a special thank you to Kla're who we met in a coffee shop. Her excellent English helped us enormously and we were very grateful. Evidence that the staff at the Villa Tugendhat are very nice!

Villa Tugendhat was our sole reason for visiting Brno - we will loved both and will definitely return.
