Climb the Euromast
With 185 metres, the Euromast is the highest tower in the Netherlands. From the Euromast you can see the whole of Rotterdam and on a clear day you can even see the coast and The Hague. Halfway up the Euromast is a restaurant with a viewing platform. The ones without fear of heights can go up to the top with the Space Tower.
During a harbour tour you will experience a special trip by the largest ports of Europe. You can see the impressive skyline with imposing buildings passing by, followed by a unique view of yards, docks and thousands of containers. The tour is 75 minutes long and it is very fascinating, with clear explanations.
SS Rotterdam Tour
The Steam Ship (SS) Rotterdam is the fifth ship with that name, which was brought into service by the Holland America line. It is the largest passenger ship ever built in the Netherlands, and is considered to be the business card of dutch workmanship when it comes to shipbuilding. Visit the prow and the bridge with the fresh air and waving tour, take a peek in the steeringhouse and take a glimpse in the underlying areas. The high-altitude sport decks and the stern offer fantastic views. Look around in the map room, the radio room and the captain’s quarters. The authentic rooms are, if available, breathtaking.
