Villa Tugendhat testifies to the birth of modern housing and the tragic fate of its residents. This World Heritage Site and its period furnishings were designed in the 1920s by modern architect Mies van der Rohe as an example of the International style. During World War II, the Gestapo confiscated the villa from its owners, a Jewish trading family. After the war, it was appropriated by the Czechoslovak state. Set on a slope, the threes-story building, which looks like a single-story structure from the street, offers a broad view over the town's historical center. Look for the elegant onyx wall in the living area of the middle floor; it changes color depending on lighting. The story of the villa and its residents inspired writer Simon Mawer's highly acclaimed novel "The Glass Room." For travelers who use our international travel planner, Brno holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Villa Tugendhat and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Easy, stylish, proportionate. This architecture will be relevant for a long time. A style that was ahead of its time. Bravo!

It's hard to imagine that a building designed and built in 1930 could be more modern and imaginative than many of the modern buildings today! The free-flowing space is perfectly reflected here! Plus the guide tour was very informative, totally recommend！👍
Masterpiece. Definitely worth visiting. You need to purchase tickets in advance. They are available via official website. It's fairly cheap. Photography is allowed only with special permit available at the ticket office. You can get there via public transport or by car. You can park in the nearby streets for free during workdays 6 - 17.
