In case you like architecture than it is an absolute must. Even if you are not an architecture fan it would impress you - just realize it is more than 80 years old villa and at those times that was absolutely innovative masterpiece!

Without reservation no chance, just do it really as much as possible in advance.

We were really lucky with our guide (young boy named Adam), really appreciated his commentary.

Tip 1: To save your time when coming to the main entrance. All gates will be probably locked, just ring the (red?) button on the pole nearby the information desk. Staff will come to open the gate.

Tip 2: For lovers of architecture: check Brno Architectural Manual with suggested routes (English and German versions, also audio downloadable records) and nice photos of the interesting buildings all around Brno.

This is something to see! I think its hard to imagine this fitting in the 1930's but just seeing it in reality in the context of Brno and Europe you can see why its so amazing. We were very lucky to have such nice fall weather to envision the view of the city from this spot. Its hard to imagine a family living there but they did for 4 years. Just amazing. The onyx wall was our favorite especially when the sun was hitting it at the perfect time of day!

Villa Tugendhat has to be one, if not the most, stunning modernist masterpiece. Designed by master architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, it highlights the achievements of a stunning era in architectural development. For anybody with an interest in architecture, this is a building not to be missed; a truly once in a lifetime experience. Only downside: a 300kr price tag to take photos.

For anybody with an interest in architecture, this is well worth a visit. I was lucky that it was included in the social programme for a conference, because I believe that normally you have to book well in advance. We had a guided tour of the villa and it was fascinating to hear the history of the building and about its restoration. The gardens are beautiful.
