Probably THE sight in Brno. This house is a true gem wehn it comes to modernist architecture. The tour through the actual villa has to be booked 2 months in advance - for a minimum. If you try to visit the villa rather last-minute, you can take at least the garden tour for 50 CK, which is a reasonable price... More

I got my booking in a month in a half before, and still had to reserve two different tours, one in Czech for me and one in English for the wife: fortunately, on the day, it turned out we were both able to do the English tour, and a great experience it was. Second piece of advice, read Simon Mawer's... More

Architectural icon in functionalist style. It was completely renovated in 2012 and now in totally amazing condition with very good tour guide that can talk about any detail. On beautiful days you can enjoy stunning views on the city. It left me speechless. Be aware that the booking should be done very early in advance. It is famous and all... More

My main reason for coming to Brno was to visit the Villa Tugendhat! The house was designed by the famous Bauhaus architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for Fritz Tugendhat and his wife Greta. Mies van der Rohe even designed the furniture for the Villa with the Tugendhat chair and the Brno chair still being sold today. The Villa is... More

Mohu více než doporučit tuto skvostnou nadčasovou vilu, která vám vezme dech. Nestačí ale dívat se na ni jen z ulice. je potřeba projít si všechna zákoutí a nechat se oslnit výhledem z tohoto překrásného místa, jehož historie není jednoduchá. I can more than recommend this magnificent timeless villa, which will take your breath away. But not enough to look... More

As a local, I have to say the place is really nicely renewed and they are taking a good care of it. Last time there was an option to choose between two options: Enter just the gardens and walk around for like 50 Kč (2 USD) or have complete visit for about 500 Kč (20 USD) with ability to sneak...

This place is a mandatory stop for all enthusiasts of architecture and design. At that time when this villa was built, it is and extremely far-sighted construction with and incredible attention to details and functionality. This is clearly a great Czech gem that should not be missed when visiting Brno. Fully recommend :)

Even if you are not a fan of functionalist architecture, you will appreciate the details in Villa Tugendhat, many of which were very progressive at the time. Beautiful garden, stunning view of the city. Definitely worth a visit, but reserve ahead of time.
