Discover Rotterdam's famous contemporary architecture with this tour of the avant-garde Markthal and Cube Houses, architectural masterpieces.

Markthal & Cube Houses Tour

At 1:45 pm, we'll begin our guided tour of the most avant-garde areas of Rotterdam in Grotemarkt Square, at the North Entrance of the Markthal. This incredible glass building has an unusual tube-like shape, and is home to offices and apartments. Under its archway, a modern market has been set up, selling traditional gastronomy as well as alternative cuisine.

We'll explore the different stalls of the market, where you can buy some famous Dutch herring or some typical meatballs. We can also look up to admire its ceiling which is decorated with a spectacular work by the Dutch artist Arno Coenen named Horn of Plenty. Our tour will continue through the Markthal and we'll find out about the archaeological sites in its lower part. 

Following your tour of the Markthall, we'll visit the rooftop of Het Witte Huis, the Oldest Skyscraper in the world, where you have a fantastic 360º view over the city.

At 2:45 pm, the tour will end in the nearby Overblaak Street, where you can appreciate on your own the enigmatic design of the Kubuswoning: the famous Rotterdam Cube Houses. Their hexagonal pillars were a milestone in the history of the city when they were inaugurated in 1984. We'll give you a brochure to visit these houses, which will include a discount voucher.

Water Taxi Tour

If you wish, you can book a guided tour of the De Rotterdam building + water taxi tour of Rotterdam. This is a more extensive experience that also includes a guided tour of the Markthal and the Cube Houses.
