Visiting Brno - must see/do things?

We are going out to Brno between 22-24 April and wanted to know if there are any things in particular that are a real must see/do. We like a wide range of things so any suggestions are welcome...

If you look through the Brno forum I think I have covered this quite comprehensively - here are a couple of tasters:

brno.cz/fileadmin/…Brno_1en.wmv

http://brnonow.com/

http://www.tugendhat.eu/en/ (definitely a must see)

You really need more than 2 days, so save some for next time :)

Tugendhat villa, a couple of pints in Paegas, see the gangs of pickpockets at station shouldn't take more than a few hours..

As the article says - friendlier and more fun than the capital :)

You will not be troubled by pickpockets, don't worry about that.

Won't be using the station so hopefully wont be pickpocketed!!

Thak you for the links GCEC I had read a fair few of them. We are there for 2 nights and 3 days so we should get to see a fair chunk of the city. I have booked a table at Borgo Agnese for my partners birthday and we are very much looking forward to that!

So far we are looking at doing some underground stuff like the labyrinth, tungendhat, bus tour and thats as far as we have got. Any other suggestions at all?

Bus tour? that won't be a lot of good to you as the city centre is all pedestrianised! I would skip that as it sounds a bit dodgy. I know it is advertised on the website, but I have never seen this bus, and I can't think where it would take you. But you never know, it might be great ...

The 'Labyrinth' is not strictly a labyrinth - there is a tour of the old cellars under Zelný trh which is quite interesting, if a little contrived (as these things always tend to be :) ) - great for kids as there are a couple of torture chambers and alchemist's laboratories and the like thrown in there, but definitely worth a look. The entrance is a little bit hidden towards the bottom of the square, but just ask and someone will point you in the right direction.

Tugendhat Villa is a must - book early to avoid disappointment - otherwise I think I have covered everything in other posts, and the above links cover a great deal as well. Play it by ear - a walk up to the Špilberk castle is good exercise and there are great views from the top, also the museum up there is worth visiting.

If the weather is nice you could go to the lake (almost at the end of the no. 1 tram in Bystrc), or you could go to the caves in Blansko, but as you only have 2 days you will be pushed to fit it all in.

And of course Pegas and, if you can find it, Blahovka! Borgo Agnese is quite a new place and everybody raves about it, but it isn't somewhere I am likely to end up so can't comment.

Have fun!
