“You must visit - just once.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Good for a one time visit just to confuse your mind a little bit. Very nice to visit and see how you can make the most of angular spaces, but I can't imagine living there.

“Eye-Catching Cube Houses.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

From the outside, you wonder if it will all crash down on you. Amazing architecture. And what people can do with small spaces like that. One of Rotterdam's all time attraction. Unique and Intriguing.

“Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

You only need a short visit, but it was very interesting. The houses are very tiny, and the purchase price they command is quite high, but I guess accommodation would be expensive in Rotterdam. Entry was only 3 euro or so.

“Satisfies the curiosity”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

pretty small and takes about a minute to see,but you pretty much have to go in once you see the cube houses, otherwise you wil always wonder how the hell do people live in those things :O

“They look great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

This is a great "show". I've never seen something similar and I am sorry I couldn't visit them inside. On the outside they look great, but odd :) Worth the visit, don't miss the Cubical Houses. Many other things with interesting architecture around, also!
