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.

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! …

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?

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.

Response from Petr D, Manažer komunikace at Villa Tugendhat
Responded Aug 28, 2019
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.
