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!

I went on a walk to visit this house, but could not find it, as it does not appear on the standard tourist maps, there are no signs showing the directions, and the online directions are useless (i.e., '20 minutes walk from the Centraal Museum'). I even asked at the tourist information office, and they gave me the wrong directions.... More

No serious study leaves it out, and justly so: Rietveld's house is one of the icons of 20th century architecture. On walking distance, another block of this architect's works is were the visit begins and is illustrated; the famous house is in perfect original state.
