Long Description:
"Revolving House is a work of art in Tilburg on the Hasselt roundabout. It is seen as one of the most remarkable realizations of roundabout art in the Netherlands. The artwork by John Körmeling consists of a rotating house in the middle of the roundabout. The house is 5 meters wide, 8.5 meters deep and 10 meters high.

The roundabout dates from 1959 and was designated as an art location from the 1980s. In 2008, the Revolving House was taken into use as an art object, which cost the municipality of Tilburg 500,000 euros. Maintenance costs 10,000 euros per year. In February 2015, one of the drive shafts broke resulting in a weeks-long downtime."

The Youtube link (see below), gives you a good view of how the house slowly moves on the roundabout.
Otherwise, check out the 2 pictures (first picture and second picture). The photo is taken from the same spot, with a few minutes difference. Check out the blue roundabout traffic sign in both pictures. It gives you a good indication how far the piece of art / house has moved.

You can not go into the house.

By car I would recommend you park at the petrol station (N 51.574258 E 5.066131) and walk back to the roundabout.
