    Locally referred to as ‘Manhattan on the Maas’, Rotterdam is that chic and contemporary waterside city to rise from the ashes of war and conflict. Make your time worthwhile by booking a walking tour guided by an expert local architect, and discover the more prominent characteristics of the city. Begin at the newly built Central Station and carve your way through to the inside of the city to fully experience its creativity, heritage, and post-war architecture.

    Walk through the modern shopping complex of Lijnbaan, Europe’s first purpose-built pedestrian street, marvel at the sophisticated and urban design of Schouwburgplein or Theater Square, see the complex and cuboidal Timmerhuis conceived by the world-famous architects of OMA, view the Church of St. Lawrence, the only remaining late Gothic structure in Rotterdam, and witness the unique spectacle of Markthal, the first indoor market of the Netherlands.

    While guiding you through the way, the local architect will also share valuable insight into the art and architecture of the city. Walk along the scenic Maas River and spot the Kop van Zuid neighborhood on the southern bank dotted with high-end architectural developments. The tour ends at the iconic and biggest landmark of Rotterdam – the Erasmus Bridge.
