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.More

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...More
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.

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...More
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...More
The Villa of Greta and Fritz Tugendhat, designed by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and built in 1929–1930, is a monument of modern architecture, and is the only example of modern architecture in the Czech Republic inscribed in the list of UNESCO World...More
Amazing to see how many of the Things we take for granted now were actually created during the 1920s by Mies Van der Rohe or put to use in a private home.
The main living room is absolutely stunning, the technology behind very interesting. a...More
I strongly recommend a visit - and an early reservation, since there are waiting lists several months long! From the street level the villa does not seem out of the ordinary, but it is splendidly situated on a slope, commanding views of extensive grounds, with...More
Mies was an excellent architect, much advanced for his time. This Villa is a good example of that: open spaces, furniture made specially for the house, beautiful garden... Better make a reservation 6 months in advance!
You have to be a VIP otherwise nearly no chance to visit Villa Tugendhat anymore. It is simply not possible to book a tour.
The managment developed a beautiful system of gatekeeping to keep the normal crowd away. Newest trick: You have to buy first...More

I had the same problem the first time I went. I sent an email to Tugendhat Villa explaining that I really wanted to visit the Villa and it turned out that they had a visit during my stay that didn't show up on their web-site, but not in English, only in Czech. My Czech is non-existent, but I still really enjoyed the tour - even if parts of it left me a bit perplexed. To some extent you can prepare the visit in advance on the internet . Also, in my case, the young Czech guide did speak some English, so at the end of the visit I chatted with her and asked her questions about the parts of the visit I hadn't understood. Even if there aren't extra visits during your stay, if you really are travelling a long way, it's worth asking in your email if they could let you join a visit that is already full. The staff there are really friendly and it's well worth a try.
