A walking tour though the city centre of Rotterdam. The city centre was bombed by the Germans in WW2, since then, the city centre has developed into the architectural marvel that is is today. I will show you the few remaining buildings that survived the bombing raid, like the St. Lawrence Church, City Hall and the 'White House', the first skyscraper in Europe.
Recent additions like the new Central Station, 'de Rotterdam' building, designed by Rem Koolhaas and the internationally acclaimed 'Markthal' are also included in the tour.
The tours are in English or Dutch. I grew up in Rotterdam and like any Rotterdammer I am very proud of my city and I can't wait to show it to you!
A walking tour through Rotterdam is also available for people with walking dissabilities or people in a wheelchair. It is possible to arrange a route beforehand with specific buildings or places you want to see. Any wishes on duration or meal/drinks during the tour are also possible
