This is an essential visit for anybody interested in modern architecture. The villa has been beautifully restored and members of the public can now take a guided tour. Be sure to book in advance for this as the number of visitors is strictly limited. If you wish to take photographs inside the Villa you will have to buy a special pass. The guided tour is excellent and gives an insight into how this villa was built and it's fascinating history. This is a classic of modern architecture and a highlight of any visit to Bruno.

This place is definately worth seeing. It is a timeless masterpiece and a gem of modern architecture. Book your tour weeks in advance because out of the eight tours daily, only two of them are in english. The tour guide was very polite and informative. Everything regarding the history and designing of the house was amazing, even the technical part of the tour which at first I thought would be boring (turned out to be one of the most interesting things). The only downside that day was the foggy weather which narrowed visibility from the terrace which would be breathtaking during a sunny day..

This house is the archtype of Functionalism. You have to book well in advance in order to attend and finding the villa required a taxi but it was well worth the effort.

The villa is in a surburban street just outside the centre of Brno.
Unless you are specifically interested in modern architecture or the history of the family that it was built for, there are many more interesting places to see in Brno.
Skip it!

The restored modernist villa is impressive and charming at once. The longer "technical" tour is worthwhile as you get to see the 1930s innovative technology. Our tour guide was very committed to the house, the history of which reflects that of Brno in the last 80 years.
