Theater Rotterdam Schouwburg

The Rotterdamse Schouwburg is a place for dance, theatre and music theatre companies with appeal to all audiences, from the youngest toddlers experiencing the theatre for the first time to the most seasoned opera connoisseurs. Virtually every evening and weekend renowned national and international companies can be seen gracing the boards here.

The production company affiliated with the Schouwburg, Productiehuis Rotterdam, produces shows by up-and-coming theatre performers. But famous Rotterdam companies such as the RO Theater and Scapino Ballet Rotterdam also frequently perform in the Schouwburg.

The Rotterdamse Schouwburg is designed by architect Wim Quist and built in 1988. The foyer was renovated in 2010 by the Flemish scenographer and light designer Jan Versweyveld and now serves as an inviting meeting place with a café and free Wi-Fi. The entire back wall is made up of a 3x14 metre LED screen media wall.

Laurenskerk

The Laurenskerk, or Church of St. Lawrence, originally arose on the banks of the River Rotte and its location can truly be called the very birthplace of Rotterdam. It is an imposing church built between 1449 and 1525, and it is Rotterdam's only surviving late Gothic building. After the bombing of Rotterdam in the Second World War, the image of the heavily damaged church and the reconstruction works that followed became a symbol of all that the city and its people had endured.
