This 1930's home is a wonderful example of Dutch Functionalism, perfectly restored and presented. Not only that it is a 2 for 1 ticket with the magnificent architecture museum down the block. The audio tour brings you through the house and provides great insight into...More

Fascinating look back to a bygone age, and how a (wealthy) family lived. Interesting audio-guide too. This may all look a bit ‘dry’, but do go, you’ll be glad you did. Just two thing: there are no toilets here, and some very steep spiral staircases...More

The expectation was not very high visiting a villa from 1933. But what a place, so modern, so beautiful. The villa was owned by a director of the Van Nelle Coffee plant in Rotterdam.

What a great experience to learn about a style of architecture by walking through it. A beautiful house that kept our three kids enthralled as well as the adults. Afterwards we visited the museum of design next door - also well worth the time.

Hard to believe this house was designed and furnished in the 1930s not the 1960s. Fascinating. Well worth a visit.

Huis Sonneveld is one of those buildings which seem relatively young, however appearances can be deceiving. The house is almost a century old and really worth the visit
