Villa Tugendhat Feb 13, 2017
For visiting the Villa Tugenhat it is compulsary to book a tour (max. 15 persons, 300 CZK for 60 minutes 350 CZK for 90 minutes), there is a online booking system which did show in July everthing full until October, now some dates for the 90 minute tour (non for the 60 minute tour) are available in November (a bit more if you chose Czeck language).

The Vila Tugendhat built from 1929 to 1930 by Mies van der Rohe was together with the Barcelona Pavillion his most important work before the war.

In case you can't geht a reservation you can see a little bit of the house from the Vila Löw-Beer, also from the Cernopolní street near the entrance and maybe you can get a "Garden"ticket by just showing up.

Icon of modern architecture Aug 13, 2015
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 one of the most important buildings of modern architecture.

I did the "extended tour" (90 minutes), which covers the living areas of the Villa, the technical facilities, as well as the garden. The website advises visitors to book their tour 2 months in advance and they are not kidding! Since I wasn't that well organised I didn't get a spot on an English tour. I emailed the Villa and asked/begged if there were any free spots. Fortunately, I got lucky and I could tag along with a Czech tour and was provided with written explanations in English. The nice tour guide also offered to answer any of my questions in English, which he did. Well, yes, it was a little weird to walk around with a group of people that you don't understand but once I got used to it, it was fine.

The only thing that, let's say, irritated me was when 2-3 of the visitors started touching things. They started knocking on the walls, to see what type of wall it was, I guess, working the doorhandles. The tour guide didn't interrupt them at all, which I thought was weird especially since you have to put on protective covers over your shoes so the floor doesn't get damaged.
