Full description
Explore Rotterdam through the eyes of an architect on this walking tour with a local architect guide. After meeting your guide at the newly-built Central Station, begin your journey through the city, following an architecturally iconic route which passes highlights like the Lijnbaan post-war modernist shopping area, Timmerhuis – designed by the world-famous architects of OMA, St.Laurens Church, the most unique indoor market in Europe – the Markthal and of course the Cube Houses.

At the riverside, board the Watertaxi speedboat and enjoy a thrilling ride to the South Bank, passing under the city's most iconic landmark – the Erasmus bridge. Learn more about the history and future plans for the former harbor area that’s now a must-see flourishing semi-island with high-end architecture and some of the best cafes and restaurants in the city. You will also see the Rotterdam OMA building, the historic Hotel New York, the Fenixloods and the Fenix Food Factory.
