MARCH 11, 2023

concept and expert moderation: Marion Kuzmany / ARCH ON TOUR

guiding: Petr Dvořák

tour operator: Mondial GmbH &Co. KG

The day tour to Brno takes you to Villa Tugendhat, which became as a classic of Brnos Modernism and as one of Mies van de Rohe's masterpieces one of the most outstanding icons of Eastern European modernist architecture. For lunch the equally modernistic designed as well as culinary excellent Café Era takes care of our physical well-being. In the afternoon the guided city-walk through the historic part of town with Petr Dvořák shows other selected examples and highlights of the architecturally richly equipped city of Brno.
