The tour starts with a visit to the remaining Vogl apartment. While en route to the interior, your guide will take you through a labyrinth of corridors of the Public Asset Management of the City of Pilsen building, in which the homes numbered 10 and 12 on Klatovská Street were already connected during WWII. In stark contrast, you will next be led into the surviving rooms designed by Adolf Loos: the living room and dining room. During the tour, you’ll get to sit in exact replicas of the original furniture and hear the stories of the select Pilsen families for whom Adolf Loos designed a series of deluxe interiors on and around Klatovská Street. You’ll then take a short 8-minute walk to Bendova Street to the Kraus apartment. Here you’ll have the opportunity to compare the different methods of renovating a historical interior, which boasts a magical space with the lounge and dining room in the never-ending reflections of two opposite mirror walls. You’ll also visit the former washroom, Mr Kraus’ study, the comfortably furnished bedroom with built-in furniture, and last but not least, the housekeeper’s room. The part of the apartment that sadly wasn’t preserved in its original appearance is used today to hold lectures and cultural events, to which you’re also cordially invited.

The guided tours are in Czech but visitors can request the tour text in German or English.

The routes do not offer barrier-free access, meaning the tours are not suitable for individuals with limited mobility. Also, due to the high number of stairs, some visitors may find the tour physically challenging.

Due to the professional nature of the commentary, the tours are not suitable for children 10 or younger.

Due to the tour’s popularity, we recommend purchasing tickets in advance.
