Kubuswoningen Rotterdam

Kijk-Kubus / Show Cube

Opening hours:

Kijk-Kubus signThe Kijk-Kubus or Show Cube is open daily from 10 a.m.to 6 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 an inexpensive ticket.)

How to reach the Cube Houses:

Promenade Oberblaak signThe 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, or by local tram or bus (see the RET transit agency's journey planner).

  • Tip: Allow time for a visit to the Oude Haven (where you'll find a number of waterside bars and restaurants) and the Rotterdam Central Library, which has English-language reading materials and free Internet terminals upstairs.
