Architecture

If you love architecture, Rotterdam is definitely worth a visit. In the city centre, historic buildings and characteristic post-war reconstruction architecture clash cheerfully with the hypermodern skyscrapers built in more recent decades. The Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen, Cube Houses, Erasmus bridge, Rotterdam Central Station and the Markthal: visit them by yourself or book one of the many (guided) city tours.

Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen

Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen

The Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen is the first art storage facility in the world that offers access to a museum’s complete collection without the mediation of a curator. The Depot has a different dynamic to that of the museum: there are no exhibitions, but the public can browse amongst 151,000 artworks, alone or with a guide, and get behind-the-scenes glimpses of conservation, restoration and provenance research.
