If you are going to charge people to tour your home, you may want to tidy the place up and hang an air freshener or two. There's not much to see once you are inside, no awesome displays, no great views, just someone's personal claustrophobic dwelling that has some unique details and architecture. The Lord of the Rings figurines are... More

These 38 condos form a bridge of a team line. The design is so unique. How can you use 100 square meters ? 2B 2B Unique. Close walk to the new Markal, a foodies paradise with over 100 venders and places to eat. Opened October 1, so packed with locals and tourists. On Saturdays there is an outdoor market and... More

Definitely not to be missed. The show cube house might not be full of all-singing and all-dancing things to do, but it is really interesting and it is worth the entrance fee just to take a look inside. Don't expect to find fantastic furnishing or breath-taking art, because there isn't any, but do expect to take a few photos inside,... More

One of the main touristic attractions of Rotterdam is the Cubic houses. It is a set of houses designed by Piet Blom and built on the 80's. The interesting thing about these houses is that they are shaped as a cube resting on one of its edges. Nowadays they are particular houses and there is also a youth hostel in... More

I guess for novelty factor it's fun to look inside one of these iconic houses, but it takes about a minute to see the whole thing. I feel they could have done more to make a visit interesting.

Although it is an interesting architecture, there is nothing to do. You can take a photo from outside and take a walk around it and that's all.

Absolutely brilliant. The 3 euro entrance fee to the museum house is well worth it. Amazing buildings built by a totally genial architect

Nice architecture, worth the time visiting. To visit inside there's a 3 euro fee, but the attendant charging it is really unpolite. So, if you are on shortage of money, and don't like to give money to rude people, save the money, eat some amazing Dutch fries and take a look at the photos online =).
