Rotterdam, better than ever!

We have not been idle in Rotterdam. You can see, hear and taste that in every corner of the city. We’re more than ready for you to come visit us. You don’t have to take our word for it, you can see it in this video.

Do Rotterdam like a local

For local delicacies, visit the Rotterdamse Oogstmarkt, a delicious and sustainable farmers’ market on Noordplein. Look for yourself in the 1664 mirrors of Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, the very first public art depot in the world. Take a watertaxi to Marconistraat: the port industry can still be felt here, alongside the new Makers District M4H, which houses a lot of creatives (Studio Roosegaarde, Atelier Van Lieshout). Rent a bike to explore the area, take a look at the Floating Farm where futuristic farming takes place. Then visit the nearby Weelde, a creative free state where you can stop for a drink and a snack. The most beautiful park is Het Park at the Euromast, where lush greenery and iconic architecture meet right next to the city centre. When visiting Het Park, don’t forget to stop by the hidden historic gardens of Schoonoord. More local tips? Check

KETI KOTI July 1st πŸ•ŠοΈ

Architecture Tuesday πŸ’—πŸ’

During Rotterdam Architecture Month, we take a weekly look at the architectural highlights in the city. Today we highlight Floating Office: the largest floating office building in the world. It’s the new headquarters of @gcadaptation, an international think-thank for climate issues and an initiative of several countries and the Wold Bank 🌳🌍

The office building is self-sufficient, circular and the construction is built entirely in wood (spruce) to minimize the ecological footprint ♻️⭐
