Landmark

Soaring eleven floors to a height of 45 metres, Het Witte Huis (White House Office Building) was the first Dutch ‘skyscraper’ following the American example. It is an important symbol of the energy and drive for innovation so characteristic of Rotterdam. This building was very popular with the locals, not least because of the panorama platform on the roof which was open to the public. Grandcafé Het Witte Huis is on the ground floor.

Designed by W. Molenbroek (1897-1898)
