There is also the 185 meter high Euromast tower where you can see Rotterdam from a magnificent vantage point: one side is the port and on other side is the architectural city.
The Maeslant Storm Surge Barrier, is the last part of the Delta Works project, is the world’s largest moveable barrier protecting the Rotterdam area, Europe’s busiest port and the country’s second largest city, from the potentially devastating effects of high floodwater. The barrier consists of two huge floatable hollow doors. Under normal conditions the doors are fully opened to allow ships to sail to and from Rotterdam. If the water level rises by 3 meters above the designated norm, the doors are closed and flooded with water. This causes them to slowly sink. The doors each 240 metres in length and comprising 15 floodable compartments are stored in docks which lie along both shores.
