The house is absolutely fascinating and definitely recommend it! I was, however, not impressed with the staff to put it mildly. You are given an audio tour at the beginning but a guide goes with you in the house and, as she said, you are allowed to ask questions. I tried to ask a question twice, but her answer was... More

This is an amazing house. Despite being built in 1924 and being almost 100 years old, it looks exceedingly modern and the lines are beautiful. It is well worth a walk thru the city to take a look, and with some planning, get tickets to tour. And it looks just like a 3D Piet Mondrian painting. An easy and pleasant... More

Rietveld Schröderhuis is an icon of 1920s modernist architecture, very innovative for its time and well worth a visit. It's often sold out so be sure to book ahead. The fee includes admission to the Centraal Museum in Utrecht, and the best idea is to go there first; with your ID and your ticket to Schröderhuis, the museum will give... More

Plan to take a bus or taxi to this fascinating little house designed by Gerrit Rietveld for Maria Schroeder and her kids in 1924. The highly functional home built as a cube with fascinating features that makes you wonder why it's not in your own home. Sliding walls transform a single room into 2 bedrooms, bath and kitchen. Be sure... More

I've been to the Rietveld-Schröder house ages ago, as part of my studies (building engineering). The house is full of clever solutions to make optimal use of the space. The architect was also a master of relative sizes. Everything is in proportion. The famous chair is there to see as well. As others have said, the house is quite small.... More

There is a lot of information about this house online but I urge to go and look at it in person. If you are interested in design and architecture there is a lot here to enjoy. The house itself is a revelation but it's presented well too. There is an informative video to watch before you visit (in the reception/ticket... More

I was surprised, that this house is so small. It is nice, but really small and maybe it is more better to see it on the pictures, than in real. During our picture taking 15 minutes from outside, there was 5 teenagers who stopped next to us and catch their Pokemons, but not interested in the house, only on their... More

We finally got to see the famous house. After almost a hundred years still magic how the loft like upper room is transformed into individual rooms. See how architecture comes together from glass and paint and walls and beams. Piece of livable sculpture.' Ask at the Utrecht train station which bus to take out here. They are very nice. There's...

Wonderful visit to this pre-modern, modern house. As a fan of FLW, it was interesting to see the precursors of many of his themes.

This is a must see for anyone interested in architecture. The typical style translates in the guided tour itself: simple, pragmatic and not destracting.
