The Rietveld Schröderhuis might be well known around the world because of its appearance and UNESCO World Heritage status but the only real experience is in visiting this house. It is impossible to perceive this house just by looking at pictures, plans and other drawings even though a lot of (graphic) information is widely available. The ambience is catching, seeing...

The Rietveld Schröder House constitutes both inside and outside a radical break with all architecture before it. If you are a DIY-er or just like architecture, this is an unexpected nice visit.

Yes it was great. A small but unique house built and used by one of the Netherlands premier designers. Even when constructed in the 1920's it still is very modern and the (love)story behind gives it an additional value. Be sure to get the guided tour !

Visiting upon the suggestion of a design-mad friend, I went resigned to a boring field trip, but was pleasantly surprised. The tour guide was a previous art student and really knew what and how to tell the house's stories. I was surprised at how you had to book ahead at Centraal Museum, but seeing what good care has been taken... More

The Rietveld-Schroder House is a great example of modernist architecture and the embodiment of De Stijl in a building. The staff is remarkably friendly and nice.

You have to plan ahead. I went with an architect. We took a train from Amsterdam, a 20-30 minute ride away, then ended up renting bikes on the way to the house. Otherwise, it's a long walk, and you had better bring a detailed map before you get there. They make appointments with you and limit the size of the... More

This beautiful house is some distance from the centre of town and you MUST buy your ticket before you visit. This is not well advertised and a complete nuisance. However this is not the fault of this beautiful house, easy to find with a decent map, take the No 8 bus from centre of town then walk about 20 mins.

Walking to the Rietveld house is a reasonable way from the centre of Utrecht, We went via the Centraal Museum which is a 15-20 minute walk from the main railway station. Go in to the Museum and pick up your tickets & a map it's another 20-25 minute walk to the house through lovely neighbourhoods and is an easy flat... More

Can it be that this house is NINETY years old??? This house is ageless. What a joy to tour this iconic landmark, and how prescient the designers were. Not to be missed!
