What to expect
Set off in a relaxing pace to make sure you really get to see, feel and learn all about this town.
Enjoy a 3-hour private walking tour of the beautiful city of Rotterdam and discover how the destruction of World War II led to an intensive rebuilding process and to Rotterdam becoming one of the most daring examples of modern architecture in the Netherlands.
See one of the most fascinating projects in post-war Rotterdam, the captivating cubic houses of famed architect Blom. Blom considered his designs as an abstract tree and the entire 38-cube complex as a dense urban forest, and his imaginative architectural approach is one of the highlights of this tour.
Continue your walk through Rotterdam's old harbour and pass the central shopping area. A part of the shopping area is below ground and was nicknamed ‘the sales gutter”. See the few historic building that survived the war: the post office, townhall and Laurens Church. Another highlight is the impressive Market hall, which is the first covered market in the Netherlands. It is a place where good food and unique housing are harmoniously combined in a spectacular arch. This iconic fresh market opened for business on 1 October 2014, after five years of construction.
