If you love art, design and architecture, Utrecht is a popular destination. Utrecht is where the world-famous furniture designer and architect Gerrit Rietveld was born. He was one of the big innovators of the well-known art movement called ‘De Stijl’ (Dutch for The Style), also known as Neoplasticism. The Centraal Museum of Utrecht has the largest Rietveld collection worldwide, here you find the colourful heritage of De Stijl. Like to learn more about the impact of De Stijl on architecture?
