June is just around the corner and so is the kick-off to Rotterdam Architecture Month. However, there’s no need to wait with exploring the metropole’s sparking high-rises: Rotterdam Rooftop Days have already begun!
Yesterday, the first visitors ascended the stairs to the Rotterdam Rooftop Walk — a 60-metre-long footbridge with various platforms and scenic stops on the way. 📸
The 45-minute walk begins at the Beursplein, where you’ll climb a staircase to the top of the World Trade Center.
From there, you follow the orange-paved walkways above the Coolsingel before climbing back down onto Aert van Nesstraat.
Gorgeous snaps from the opening day
If you missed yesterday’s grand opening, don’t worry. You have until June 24 to explore Rotterdam’s remarkable roofscape.
Not quite sure if a stroll at 30 metres above the ground is your thing? Not to promote FOMO, but here’s what you’d miss out on. 👇
If you haven’t snatched a ticket already, you can reserve a time slot online. Prices are €3.50 for adults while kids can go for free.
Yesterday’s opening might have been cloudy, but that didn’t put a damper on the mood.
Geometric shapes never fail to deliver the aesthetic vibes we long for. 😍
Okay, quick pause. Can you spot the Erasmus bridge? Did you know that the iconic landmark weighs the same as 1700 adult elephants? Now, there’s a fun fact for you.
Forget that pretty unaffordable penthouse you’ve been dreaming about. Rotterdam Rooftop Walk lets you stroll through the city’s skyline in your own time.
