Tours in Rotterdam

Rotterdam is innov­at­ive, cre­at­ive, cos­mo­pol­it­an – and a little rough around the edges.

 

After its city centre was erad­ic­ated in the Second World War, Rotterdam rose from the ashes and rein­ven­ted itself as a cre­at­ive hub. Its har­bour is the largest in Europe, and its archi­tec­ture is the most dar­ing in the Neth­er­lands. Glossy sky­scrapers can be found next to tiny infill pro­jects, icon­ic archi­tec­ture next to bot­tom-up ini­ti­at­ives. No won­der that the city has a thriv­ing archi­tec­ture scene, includ­ing renowned offices such as OMA and MVRDV. 

 

Let us show you the most dynam­ic city in the Neth­er­lands!
