the architecture of this thing is brilliant. It's almost magical and it's also really cool you can stay in there (there's a hostel). We also have the ''Markethall'' next to it now, and on tuesday's and saturday's the local market takes place at the ''Blaak'' next to it.

The World famous Cube houses of Blaak is only one of the many weird things you will see in this neighborhood. Get off at Blaak Subway or tram station and walk up to the main square. Stand there and you will find several structures which will really amaze you. The Cube houses are one of them, and certainly the most... More

The cube houses are an early example of Rotterdam's modern architecture. It's a funny place to visit just for feeling when you are inside of one of the cube houses that is open as a museum. Entrance fee is 3 Euros.

Loved these highly original and quirky houses. Very pleasing on the eye and I have to admit I would love to spend some time in one.

The cube houses are another fascinating example of Rotterdam's modern architecture, this Estate dates from the late 70s / early eighties. It is possible to view inside one of these houses for an entrance fee of three Euros. Your visit will probably not last more than 10 minutes, worth it perhaps if your curiosity gets the better of you. Be... More

Ok so the Kubus museum is not really a museum but a show house of what it looks inside, when you know that from the beginning you appreciate it more. There's no extra information. Children 3 and under are free.

Wow! These may be the most unique houses in the world. The show cube is a model cube house available for touring at a nominal cost, although there really isn't that much to see. If you are not tall and not claustrophobic and have an off-kilter appreciation for the offbeat, this may be the home for you. They are not... More

This place looked intriguing on internet sites/photos, but within a few minutes of walking around I began to feel spiritually sick! I experienced a noticeable drop in mood / increase in unease - I can only compare this feeling to that experienced when visiting the Parkhall estate in Sheffield, UK (but that was far less severe). As I was with... More
