The Löw-Beer Heritage Trail

Employing simple means, the The Löw-Beer Heritage Trail project aims to draw the attention of residents of Brno and South Moravia as well as visitors to the region, to the many years of entrepreneurial activities of the Löw-Beers, the family of textile industrialists, in this area. The project set out to chart the sites related, directly or in the broader context, to the Löw-Beer family.

In Brno these include e.g. villas (Villa Löw-Beer and Villa Tugendhat in the neighbourhood Černá Pole or the villa of Ernst Löw-Beer in Pisárky), flat blocks (Botanická Street No. 14, Cejl No. 6), industrial complexes (the textile factory later called Vlněna), graves in the Jewish graveyard in the quarter Židenice, but also the seat of the Czech Radio Brno designed by Ernst Wiesner (originally the Union Bank, where the Löw-Beers had their financial assets deposited).

The Löw-Beers' “heritage“ will be presented by means of exhibitions, a mobile map application and guided tours of Brno.

In cooperation with the Technical Museum in Brno and TIC Brno, the guided tours around the residences of manufacturers in the Brno discrict Černá Pole (Black Fields) also take place throughout the year. For information about current themed walks check Facebook.
