De Rotterdam Tours offers guided tours of the Markthal and De Rotterdam, two of Rotterdam’s famous architectural places of interest. An experienced guide will tell you all about the design, the building process and the history of the building in question.
The tour of the Markthal provides a behind-the-scenes-look through a visit to the underground logistic cooling centre and a meet & taste with one of the market sellers. You can then visit one of the apartments and the Tijdtrap exhibition hall in the Markthal’s stairwell, where archaeological objects found during construction give an impression of the area’s rich history.
The tour of De Rotterdam takes visitors to different locations in the building, such as the Atrium, the central part with a glass roof between the east and middle tower, the Marketing Suite for business receptions, the parking deck and the Lobby in the middle office block. The high-speed lift also brings visitors to the 40th floor for a 360- degree panoramic view of the city.
The Titanen Tour combines both tours into a 2.5 hour long tour that includes a trip on a water taxi and a tasting.
Tailor-made tours (Tour Op Maat) are available on request for businesses, at any time during the day, in English, German, French and Chinese. De Rotterdam Tours will be pleased to assist you with reception, reception rooms, speakers, catering and presentation for events, meetings or company outings.
Individuals can sign up for one of the Open Tours in the weekend, choosing either an hour-long tour through the Markthal or De Rotterdam.
