Kunsthal Rotterdam

Kunsthal Rotterdam is housed in a striking building designed by Rotterdam s OMA/Rem Koolhaas architectural practice and was opened in 1992. Since then, the Kunsthal has put culture in the widest sense of the word on show, from elitist to popular. There are always a number of exhibitions to see, both large and small-scale, from old masters to contemporary art, from innovative design to engaging photography. Guided tours round the main exhibition can be given in Dutch, English, and German for up to 20 people. Architectural tours are also available (on request). Larger groups will be led by more than one guide. The Kunsthal Caf in the building s basement serves snacks and drinks. Kunsthal Rotterdam is in Museum Park in the Museumkwartier district. It is a five-minute walk from Leuvehaven metro station and trams 7 and 8 stop nearby. There is an indoor car park at Museum Park. * 25% discount on admission fee with the Rotterdam Welcome Card *

De Markthal

You'll find an indoor market hall in various world-class cities, but the combination with luxury housing makes Rotterdam's Markthal the first of its kind. The apartments are draped over the food market in a horseshoe configuration. The Markthal has about 100 fresh food stands, nearly 15 food shops and various restaurants, with a supermarket and a four-level underground car park below. As you wander amongst the market stands, look up to enjoy the massive artwork sprawling across the ceiling: the 'Horn of Plenty' by Arno Coenen and Iris Roskam.
