A building of the German Technical University in Brno from 1860

German Technical University in Brno (German: Deutsche Technische Hochschule Brünn) was a technical university in Brno. It existed from 1849 to 1945 and instruction was in German.

At the time, Brno was a multicultural city with population of both Czechs and Germans. A technical university serving both nationalities was proposed,[when?] but this fell through, resulting in the establishment of the Czech Technical University in 1899. Beginning in 1860, the German Technical University was located on Komenského Square in Brno, and in 1910 a second building was built beside the first one.

The second building was built up and added in 1910

During the Nazi occupation, the university was to be relocated to Linz, but this did not in fact occur. In 1945, the German Technical University in Brno was closed and its property given to the Brno University of Technology.
