De Rotterdam Tours

Architecture, Guided tour

With a tour of De Rotterdam Tours you have really been in the Markthal. In a 1-hour tour, a professional guide tells everything about the historic location of food mecca Market Hall, the design of the building, the concept and the construction of the huge glass facades. Be surprised with fun facts and facts that you did not hear before. You get a special look behind the scenes, such as exclusively in the underground logistics (cooling) center. The tour continues along the Time staircase; a presentation of historical artifacts found during the excavations before construction. The guide takes you to the gallery to fully experience the unique ceiling artwork. During a ‘meet & taste’ one of the entrepreneurs will be happy to tell you what it is like to work in Markthal and you will of course get a taste of the delicious products that are sold there (cheese, chocolate, tea, juice, etc).
