On this tour along the icons of Rotterdam you can’t miss the Markthal, opened by Queen Maxima. The city host will guide you through this incredible building and tell you about all the interesting details. Your neck will almost start to hurt from staring up to probably the largest artwork in the Netherlands; “Horn of Plenty” by Arno Coenen. You will also be able to taste both great Dutch and international products.

Next to the tallest building (Maastoren), Rotterdam also features the largest building of the Netherlands within the city’s borders. Rotterdam-based Rem Koolhaas designed this building, “Rotterdam; the vertical city”, the centre of the skyline at the Meuse. The city host will gladly reveal the building’s exact dimensions and inform you about all the activities inside.
The Erasmusbrug is the icon of Rotterdam. “The Swan” is the gateway from the city centre to Zuid and v.v. This wonderful piece of architecture and functionality has more to offer than you would think at first sight. Experience the greatness of Rotterdam when you’re on the bridge with the skyline on your feet, the crowded Meuse flowing underneath you and the bridge’s pylons reaching up into the sky.
We will visit a lot more of the city’s exciting places in addition to the icons mentioned above. Katendrecht (by bike only), de Fire Boundary (Brandgrens) and a hidden park are just a few of them. Have you ever sung the traditional Ketelbinkie song? Now you will! There’s really too much to mention. Be surprised! Of course we’ll not forget the city’s past but we would like to emphasize the changes Rotterdam went through to become what it is today; a hospitable modern city with a hart. Ready to warmly greet all of you. Welcome!
