Station Blaak

Between 1987 and 1993, the rail viaduct and rail bridge were replaced by the Willemsspoor tunnel. From that point on, train traffic through this area was underground. Blaak Station is part of this subterranean line.

Only the station’s tram stops can be seen from street level. The metro tracks are at ­1, and the rail tunnel for national and international trains from Rotterdam to the south and vice versa is situated another level down. A fragment of Rotterdam's fourteenth­century city wall is on display in the station.
