Want to see some freaky houses? Even if you are not interested in modern architecture, you should not leave Rotterdam without visiting the Kubuswoningen. These living houses are one of many symbols for modern Rotterdam and perhaps one of the most interesting appartments in the world. One of the houses is open for public (entrance 1,80 EUR, opens at 10:00 a.m.) and gives you an impression how people live in these "dices". Around the Kubuswoningen, you will find some more examples of modern architecture.

One of many nicknames for these buildings is "blaakse bos" which means "Blaak woods". The name comes from the nearby Blaak metro/train station and the form of the houses. Although they have a cubic form, they look like trees as they are set on piles.

Address: Overblaak 70, 3011 MH Rotterdam
Directions: Near Blaak metro station, just a minute away from the oude haven.
