The best view of Rotterdam
Euromast Rotterdam was built in honor of the first World Flower exhibition the Floriade, by architect H.A. Maaskant and contractor J.P. van Eesteren. Queen Beatrix led the festive opening ceremony. The 100 high mast (imitating the mast of a ship) was the first Dutch attraction at great height.
The name ‘Euromast’
‘Euro’ because Rotterdam is at the heart of the Euro trading union and ‘mast’ because this Dutch word also known by for instance Englishmen, Frenchmen and Japanese visitors.
