A look inside

One of the Cube Houses is open to the public for a small entrance fee. This is the living room, complete with the original built-in furniture. I love the windows, but there's not a lot of space for entertaining.

And here's a look at the bedroom. The furniture here is also original. The houses all came with built-in items as it would be difficult to furnish the strangely shaped rooms otherwise. Photos taken in May 2016.

Innovative architecture

The Cube Houses are one of Rotterdam's most iconic sights. Though they are quite interesting to look at, they're not very practical on the inside. Photo taken in May 2016.

Going down

You might not be able to tell, but this is an old escaltor with real wooden stairs! It was a long way down to the Maastunnel

Here's how it looks for pedestrians; cyclists have a separate tunnel. I didn't walk the entire span, but I found it quite interesting. There is a similar tunnel in Hamburg that I visited not so long ago. For more treasures, take a look here. Photo taken in May 2016.

Under the sea

This mythical scene greets people coming up from Rotterdam's Maastunnel. It's an easy way for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the Maas river. For more murals, take a look here. Photo taken in May 2016.

The bubble

Rotterdam has a lot of architectural surprises, like this bubble building that's out on the water near the floating trees. For more reflections take a look here. Photo taken in May 2016.

On the avenue

Nothing beats a tree-lined avenue. This one in Rotterdam even had a water view to the right. Photo taken in May 2016.

Out in a Boot

Seeing a city from the water is always fun! We took a harbour tour on the Pannenkoekenboot in Rotterdam, it was fun and relaxing and as a bonus, you got unlimited pancakes. Photo taken in May 2016.
