Rotterdam Rooftop Walk is open! Here’s how to experience the city’s roofscape

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. 👇
