Guided Architecture Tour by bike ca. 2,5 hours (including one day bike rental)

After the many grand openings of the Markthal, Koolhaas’ ‘de Rotterdam’ and the spectacularly newly renovated central station, we can safely say, Rotterdam has put itself on the international map as one of the most interesting architectural cities of Europe!

But Rotterdam is more than the modern blockbuster-architecture you see at first sight. Throughout the entire 20th century, Rotterdam has been built up, torn down and renewed several times. Modern architectural history is found here. You will find the pre-war innovators of architecture, the modernists after the war, the social architects from the 70/80’s and the STARchitects from the ‘booming nineties’. Rotterdam has it all!

That’s up to you.
