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.

Interesting house if you like art and are interested in seeing the only house ever built in Di Stijl style. Ticket gets you access to the museum too

You have to book in advance and find your way to the house in a suburb of Utrecht but it is well worth it. You get a thorough visit to the house and the museum staff will show how all the partitions work in this unique architectural gem. Very special. Like being inside a work of art.

this was very unique, never seen such a house in whole europe. It is situated in a normal street and when you are inside it is a beautifull architecture with walls that can be replaced.

A very important element in the development of modern architecture and more than worth the visit. The house is in excellent condition despite the age and challenges associated with building technology limitations of the time. Very well organized audio tour. Very nice walk to the house from the Centraal Museum (20 minutes).

It is incredible that this house was built in 1924. The tour is excellent and insightful. At 10 minutes before your booking time there is a short video which is helpful to watch. Then you are given an audio guide for the tour, which you can listen to at your own pace. There is also an actual guide who is... More

Nicely rebuilt into its original state. The audio tour is well done and guides you through the building. It is a pity that only the main house is accessible but not the model flats opposite the highway.
