This museum can be for everyone. The main house is like a glorified IKEA, yes. Take that for what it is. But for more design & architecture enthusiasts, the other houses are the draw. The SANAA warehouse, the Frank Gehry, Tadao Ando and the Zaha...More

We went to Vitra after a couple of recommendations and we were not disappointed. If you can, take the architectural highlights tour - its rare to have so many world-renowned architects in such close proximity to each other and it is a real treat.

Most interesting part for me was the Schaudepot because of it’s historical overview. The Museum was too small imho to call it a museum, and the Vitra Haus was like being at IKEA; an IKEA for the more fortunate that is. Liked the Hadid firestation;...More
