Cube Houses Rotterdam
Continued from page 1
ABOVE: The Kijk-Kubus, or Show-Cube, is a
short walk upstairs from the Kubuswoningen courtyard.
Kijk-Kubus - Show-Cube:
The Kijk-Kubus or Show Cube is open daily from 11
a.m.to 5 p.m. Follow the signs to the entrance, which is simply a doorway
beneath one of the cubes. (Be prepared to climb a steep flight of Dutch-style
steps; at the top of the stairs, you'll enter the cube dwelling's living room,
where you can buy a ticket for a few euros.)
How to reach the Cube Houses:
Kubuswoningen are just south of the Rotterdam Blaak railroad and
Metro station, at the top of the Oude Haven (Old Harbor). They're only a short
walk from most other locations in the city center, but if you're in a hurry, you
can reach the Blaak Station by NS commuter train or Metro, on the No. 21 tram,
or on bus 49.
