Villa Tugendhat was built in 1929–1930 for Greta and Fritz Tugendhat according to the design of the German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The uniqueness of the Brno villa lies in its formal architectural purity, its setting and framing by nature and the intertwining of spaces, but also in its technical and structural design and the use of noble materials. Villa Tugendhat is not only an iconic building in the context of modern construction in Brno, but also the magnum opus of its architect. That is why in 2001, as the only monument of modern architecture in the Czech Republic, it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Between 2010 and 2012, Villa Tugendhat underwent a restoration and renovation that returned it to its appearance at the time of its completion in 1930.

Villa Tugendhat offers guided tours of the entire building, reservations are required several months in advance. The garden of Villa Tugendhat is now freely accessible to the public during opening hours.
