Rotterdam is still the largest port in Europe
Rotterdam is the largest port of Europe and 8th in the world. Chinese harbours are bigger like Shanghai and Singapore. You can see that it is a big port everywhere in this typical harbour city. Bombed in the Second World War and rebuilt trendy and stylishly by architects of world fame such as Rem Koolhaas, Renzo Piano, Breuer, West8 etc. A pallet of modern architecture and Dutch building ingenuity. During the City Tour Rotterdam by foot or by bus you will hear and see much more about it from your Guide Jan
You can see a lot of modern architecture in Rotterdam, can’t you?
Even the Erasmus bridge was designed by an architect, Ben van Berkel. Very special are the Cube houses by Piet Blom in 1980 but there are many more post war architectural pieces of fame to be seen. The new Market hal, the six tine chapel by the architecture company of Winny Maas.
The Unesco list even mentions the Van Nelle factory in Rotterdam?
The Van Nelle factory is new on the Unesco list. The Sonneveldhuis can also be seen, in authentic state including the Gispen period furniture. The Sonneveldhuis of the CEO of the Van Nelle factory and is also by the architects Brinkman and Van der Vlugt. The distances in Rotterdam are great so transport by bicycle, bus or tram is the best mode.
