Markthal Tours

The first covered market of the Netherlands recently opened its doors in Rotterdam. Markthal includes a huge market floor on the ground floor under an arch of apartments. Its shape, its colourful interior and the height turns Markthal into an unique spectacle. Unique is not only its shape and size, but especially the way the different functions are combined. The combination of an apartment building covering a fresh food market with food shops, restaurants, a supermarket and an underground parking is found nowhere else in the world.

Guided tours of this remarkable sight are possible, during which you’ll visit the highlights of the building, including one of the apartments, the logistic centre and of course, the market itself!

Van Nelle Fabriek

As the most prominent industrial monument in the Netherlands, the former Van Nelle Factory was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in June 2014. Designed by Brinkman & Van der Vlugt, the factory is a classic example of the Nieuwe Bouwen school of Dutch modernist architecture, built between 1927 and 1930. The ingenious building was designed to provide all the facilities for the employees close at hand, keeping the building fully above-ground to create air, light and space.

Het Ding van Naum Gabo

The three-dimensional construction has flanked De Bijenkorf department store since 1957. It’s an ‘ideological contribution to Constructivism’. The integration between the sculpture and the architecture is striking.
