Rotterdam Architecture – Introduction
Rotterdam is the second largest Dutch city and not only the major port in The Netherlands but by far the biggest port in Europe. It is located in the west of the country, close to the North Sea. The city has a wealth of good contemporary architecture, all possible to visit on our Rotterdam Architecture Tours.

Key buildings are Timmerhuis, MVRDV House, The New Orleans building, Kunsthal Rotterdam, De Rotterdam, B Tower, Nieuwe Luxor Theater, The Red Apple (Wijnhaven Island) and the Didden Village.
The Kuip football station has been put on a complete hold as has the Coolsingel project. But the Timmerhuis project by OMA is under construction, the Markthal by MVRDV reached top out, the new Central Station had its soft opening, Alsop’s CalypSO appartment buidling is completed and so is the 150.000m2 ‘vertical city’ De Rotterdam by OMA.

Rotterdam Architecture Walking Tours
Rotterdam Architecture Tours can focus on traditional buildings, contemporary buildings or both. We can provide information to build up a good programme, for example if your group is interested in Dutch office buildings we can assist with advising where the key projects are ahead of their visit to Holland.
