Rotterdam is undoubtedly the high-rise city of the Netherlands. Starting with the construction of the first European “skyscraper” called the White House in 1898, followed by the construction of all the office and residential towers in the 90s and further.
One of the highest and most famous towers of the center of Rotterdam is Delftse Poort; right next to the Central Station. The Dutch architect Abe Bonnema designed these sleek mirrored towers which dominate the city’s skyline for over twenty years now. However the elegance of the exterior of the building is nothing compared with the incredible view from the top floor.
In a 60-minute tour, an architectural ‘Urban Guides’ guide will guide you through the building. In the past Delftse Poort looked like a closed fortress, yet now Delftse Poort has been opened for everybody who is interested. During the week, everyone is welcome for coffee or lunch or dinner at the renovated plaza on the 3rd floor. During this tour, you are taken to the 37th floor which isn’t open to the public. At this floor you can experience the breathtaking view over Rotterdam and the surrounding regions.
