Begin your walking exploration of Rotterdam's highlights when you meet your guide under the clock at the modern Central Station at 10 AM. Then head to the city center, passing post-war reconstruction monuments such as the shopping area, Lijnbaan. Stop for a photo of the Timmerhuis building, rising like a cloud of glass and steel above the city. Hear about Rotterdam's history from your guide, an expert on architecture and art history. Explore landmarks such as the pre-World War II Laurens church, Rotterdam's Cube Houses, and the modern Markthal building, famous for its ceiling artwork. Relax over a snack at the indoor market before continuing your walk. Stroll along the river Maas, taking in the impressive views, and see the new developments on the south bank before concluding around 12:00 PM on the riverside with an Amazing skyline view.
Architecture Walk Rotterdam is organized by Silvia and Tania - an architect and an artist/landscape designer, both living and working in Rotterdam. We are driven by our love for the city, our passion to explore it, and the desire to share our knowledge with the rest. Rotterdam is the architectural capital of the Netherlands. The city is like an open museum of architectural styles and achievements, an example of postwar reconstruction, modern planning, and development. It’s a vibrant, cosmopolitan place of nice people and multiple cultures. We are proud to present our wonderful city to you!
We start by the new modern entry of Rotterdam - Central Station. Silvia and Tania will take you to see the most important sites in the central area of Rotterdam. Your guides will lead you through the daily life and history of the city, where almost every building and a corner has a story.
