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!

Toren op Zuid

The Italian architect allowed the surface of this office tower to lean forward as an echo of the suspension cables of Erasmus Bridge. The giant light installation on the façade consists of 900 tiled flat lamps, together forming a screen that displays various images and texts. Fun detail: the slope is nearly 6 degrees, identical to the leaning Tower of Pisa.

Groot Handelsgebouw

The Groothandelsgebouw is business centre with offices for wholesale companies and once symbolised the post-war reconstructions in Rotterdam. The enormous building block of 220 by 84 metres was and still is the largest trade centre in the Netherlands. The road running through it is 1.5 kilometres long and serves three different levels. Once home to the Kriterion cinema, the roof pavilion is now used as a sun terrace for grandcaf Engels. Designed by H.A. Maaskant and W. van Tijen (1947-1953)
