Rotterdam Architecture Month

We celebrate Rotterdam Architecture Month from 24 May to 16 June 2019. With its impressive skyline and highlights such as Central Station, the Erasmus Bridge, the Markthal and soon the Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam is the top architecture city in the Netherlands.

Discover festivals such as the Rotterdam Rooftop Days, the Day of Architecture and the 100-year Bauhaus with its special programme, take part in the various tours or visit the many exhibitions, lectures and much more. Experience the architecture of Rotterdam, talk about the future of the city and immerse yourself in architecture with the extensive programme!

Post Podium

During the Rotterdam Architecture Month, the former Post Office on Coolsingel transforms into the main stage for Rotterdam architecture: POST Podium. This building will open its doors to the public once more before it is renovated. POST is open on weekdays in the evening with a lively #RAM19 program and can be visited free of charge on weekends.

Rotterdam has more flat rooftops than anywhere else in the Netherlands. This is partly a result of the reconstruction after the bombardment of 14 May 1940.

Eat, sleep, architecture, repeat

If you want to visit several festivals or events, it is useful to book a hotel in advance. In restaurants you do not necessarily have to reserve, because there are enough in Rotterdam; there is something for every taste and every budget.
