Rotterdam was distroyed during second World War and, like a Phoenix, revived frow it's own ashes. Kijk-Kubus project a futurist minimalist architecture landmark of modern Rotterdam along with Central Station buiding and several other iconic structures represent the tenacity of dutch people. During first hours of a sunny day one can capture superb reflections of this impressive building in canal... More

The architecture is interesting, not like anything I have ever seen before. It is possible to go into one of the houses and look around. Tickets for this cost 3 Euros. Personally I do not think that it is worth going inside. It is just the same as looking round somebody else's apartment. It is far more interesting (and cheaper)... More

These houses were built in 70's, and they still look so unique and modern today. Highly recommended if you visit Rotterdam. It is very close to Markthal. I would love to see what it looks like inside but the museum was closed for 2 weeks. There is a motel ( the kind you can pay by bed, not by room),... More

Finaly, the mystery has been solved. I have seen the show-cube inside and i must say that the cube is ingeniously decorated with custom-made furniture. Tip, buy the Rotterdam welcome card and you will receive a discount on this and many other atractions, including 1,2 or 3 days free public transport.

We visited this unique architecture which is a bit mind boggling to me but definitely worth a visit. It is located on the square just opposite the Markthallen. A very creative take on modern housing, however, it would not be my choice of living.

It's 3 euros to enter, but it is truly interesting to walk around the unusual cube houses. They have a distinct look and are fun.

One of the most remarkable pieces of architecture in Europe. One should definitely visit this when in Rotterdam. Be aware: prices are as steep as the entrance stairs. The Dutch museumkaart is not accepted here.
