The Rietveld Schroder House is another glorious example of Utrecht’s architecture. This house was constructed for a Mrs. Truss Schroder in 1924. The elegant building with no boundary walls is simply amazing. It has that unique mystical feeling to it that only De Stijl architecture has.

Now it has been converted into a museum, but the architecture is all the same, so you wouldn’t want to miss this at all.
Who wouldn’t want to go to a real life castle? Utrecht gives you this opportunity. Castle Museum Sypesteyn is a mind-boggling castle which was constructed in 1500.

The gardens, ponds, streams, and decoration pieces are all unique and you have to see all that with your own eyes.
