Rotterdam Tour of Titans: ‘It’s got everything!’
The perfect start when staying in Rotterdam for a few days. A knowledgeable guide will join you all the way. Enjoy a magnificent view from the lofty height of 105 metres in architectural icon De Rotterdam (OMA/Rem Koolhaas, 2013), then race along in a water taxi to arrive at the old port for a stroll to the modern monument Cube Houses (Piet Blom, 1981), capped off by a fascinating visit to the famous Markthal (MVRDV, 2014) in city centre, including a ‘Meet&Taste’. The Tour of Titans is a very complete tour that excites all the senses.
Rotterdam is the ultimate city of modern architecture. And this tour really shows it off. It starts with exclusive access to one of the highest floors in De Rotterdam building. The tour guide will take you up in one of the speediest lifts of Europe. The 31st floor is still ‘raw’ which makes this visit even more special; you can walk around freely and enjoy an unencumbered 360° view. From up here you are looking down on the Erasmus bridge, and the next moment you will be zooming under it, hair whipping in the wind, in a super swift water taxi.
And then you’ll find yourself at the very spot where Rotterdam’s history began, the Oude Haven (Old Harbour). As you walk along under the Cube Houses the Markthal suddenly appears in all its glory. Your guide will tell you all kinds of interesting facts & figures about the design of the Markthal, the spectacular ceiling art and the intriguing Time Stairs. To top it off you will meet with an entrepreneur on the market floor who will treat you to a tasty bite; this tour has got everything!
