Full description

Take in panoramic views of Rotterdam on an exclusive rooftop tour. Visit four rooftops that are not usually accessible to the general public and admire the city's stunning skyline.

Start inside the Rotterdam Discovery where you'll learn about Rotterdam's history and the reason why the city has more than 18 million m2 of flat rooftops. After approximately 10 minutes you will head to your first rooftop.

Situated in a hotel on the Coolsingel, the rooftop gives you a marvelous view over the Coolsingel and the East part of the city center. Learn about the crucial role of multifunctional rooftops and what the city of Rotterdam is doing to develop more rooftops.

After a short walk on the Coolsingel, passing the City Hall and Hofplein, you'll visit the second rooftop, the Dakakker. This is a green rooftop that is being used as a vegetable and fruit garden. They also have rooftop buffering water and a small cafe is included on top.

The third rooftop is on a magical place right in the middle of the city center opposite the Sint Laurenschurch. Get an amazing 360˚ view of the skyline of Rotterdam, the Laurenschurch, the Markthal, and more.

Afterward, your guide will take you along the Markthal, Cube Houses, and Old Harbor to end at the White House. Your last rooftop will be at the White House, once the highest building in Europe. Get an impressive view of the Meuse river, the Erasmus bridge, the Cube houses from the top, and beyond.
