De Rotterdam is an iconic example of urban architecture.
The three linked towers are nearly 150 metres high, forming a ‘vertical city’ of high-class flats, a 4-star hotel, offices, shops, restaurants, fitness and parking facilities.
Covering an area the size of a football field, the building was constructed according to highly sustainable building practices.
The name refers to the ss Rotterdam, a steamship that once sailed a regular route to New York and offered a wide range of functions for its passengers’ comfort.
Visitors can sign up for an Open Tour in the weekend via De Rotterdam Tours : a one-hour tour of the De Rotterdam building complex. An expert guide will tell you all about the design, the construction and the history of the building.
