Very interesting

A short and excellent visit I always wanted to do and now as a result of the lesser amount of tourists easy accessible. No queues. Of course, it is only doable for adults and children not needing support, i.e. wheelchair, buggy.
Piet Blom has really created something fabulous here.

New market hall is amazing and over this lovely bridge is old harbour with a few bars and restaurant.

It’s a lovely glimps into Rotterdam’s past.

Felt such a nice welcome to Rotterdam as these houses greeted me as I exited the station. They felt so gezellig to see and gave me a feeling of warmth and happiness

Funny houses

The cubic houses which cannot be found elsewhere are iconic images of the city. Although visitors have no chance to take a look inside the houses, photo-taking of the outside is still nice.

Go here or be square!

While this may not be the most practical design for a home, it's worth a visit as it challenges the was we think about buildings and structures. It was interesting to see how the furniture had been designed to fit the space. The view from the top is nice and you can see the Markthal. May not be suitable for people who are less mobile, as the stairs and passages are steep and narrow.

Would you really want to live there?

Seems a very strange concept to live in a cube that sits on one of its corners. Nevertheless the houses seem to be quite efficient despite their appearance of wasting valuable space.

Special design
Dec 2019
Just passed by the cube house but did not have chance to see the interior as it was too late and lack of time. The exterior design was really special and interesting. Love the color as well. I'll definitely come back one day and visit the interior.

Mixed feelings
Mar 2020 • Family
The houses are interesting but paying €10.50 for a family of four to go in one for 2 minutes didn’t leave me with the feeling it was money well spent.

The first floor of the house is where the woman takes your €3, the second has a bed, toilet and cupboard, and the third floor has a chair.

It seems crazy saying it’s too expensive at €3, but frankly it is.

Just enjoy these unique and very badly designed properties from the outside.

Worth a short visit but lacking in so many ways
Feb 2020
Somehow you cannot view these places without wanting to go in. In some ways it is worthwhile for only 3Euro per person but this gets you into only one cube, so spend time viewing the outside area for free (great for photography). You will spend very little time inside as there is little to see, very poor interpretation/explanation and a surly staff member on the desk. Had there been someone there with passion to explain the history and theory behind the project it would have been excellent but otherwise spend the cost of a parking ticket to say that you have been into this rather 'mad' architectural experiment. I was really excited but came out rather disappointed by the whole experience which is very unlike me! But, go in and wonder how you would ever carry your shopping, child, pram up into them or park your car or get a disabled friend to visit you...!
Note: Those with any form of mobility problem need not bother as I cannot see any way they could navigate the narrow and very steep staircases. Note also that there has been quite a bit of modern renovation of these cubes so you do not see them exactly how they were built but I guess this is understandable. (Sadly one of the few 'Poor' reviews I have ever had to write).

Just across the square from the Markthal and well worth a visit and a photo opportunity. Very unusual and quirky.
