Full description
Start your tour by meeting your enthusiastic guide, who will tell you all about the amazing places you’ll see throughout this tour and bring out some special stories too. Your tour kicks off at De Rotterdam, an iconic work of architecture conceived of as a vertical city. Visit its atrium with a glass roof and the parking deck underneath all three towers. Journey to the rooftop of Pakhuismeesteren and enjoy a scenic view of Rotterdam and its world-renowned architecture.

Continue on to enjoy a spectacular water taxi ride under the de Erasmusbrug Bridge.  The water taxi will bring you to the Old Harbor where a guided walk starts in this spot where Rotterdam originated, the mouth of “de Rotte” in the New Maas. Along this walk, you’ll stop in for a visit of a Cube House, one of the amazing houses turned on their axis in a unique use of space and form.
 
As a last stop, visit the Rotterdam Markthal. Here, you’ll learn all about the Timestairs surrounded by architectural treasures, experience the elevated walkway with its view of the art of the hall, and see the Horn of Plenty, the gigantic work of art on the Markthal’s ceiling. Finish your tour off with a “meet and taste” at an entrepreneur’s stall, who will treat you to a small bite to eat.
