Take in the views the observation deck at one of Holland's architectural gems, The De Rotterdam building, with this Rotterdam Watertaxi Tour.
Rotterdam Watertaxi Tour
We'll meet at 11:30 am at the pedestrian bridge on the Dolf Henkesplein quay, located in the Katendrecht district of Rotterdam. An enthusiastic tour guide will tell you all about the places visited and their unique stories. We'll then explore Fenix 1 and Deliplein at Katendrecht. From there we'll walk to the transformed Wilhelminapier. We take a look at new projects like Floating Rotterdam and Floating Hotel. We'll visit the rooftop of an old renovated Warehouse, where you can admire the high-rise buildings.
After the visit to the rooftop, we'll board one of the most characteristic vehicles of the city for a water taxi tour of Rotterdam. On this trip, we'll pass the famous Erasmusbrug Bridge, which is also notable for its modern yet functional design. Its location between the two banks of the New Maas Canal makes this footbridge one of the icons of 21st century Rotterdam.
The water taxi tour will end at the city's old harbour. Once we disembark, we'll take a walk to Blaak Avenue to admire the famous Rotterdam Cube Houses (Kubuswoning). Next to these unusual dwellings is the Markthal: a covered market housed in another avant-garde architectural structure. On its vault, you'll see the vivid colours of the "Horn of Plenty", the work that decorates this roof.
At 1:30 pm we'll conclude the tour at the Markthal, where you can enjoy the extensive range delicacies on your own.
You can also book a tour of the Markthal and the Cube Houses: a shorter tour that doesn't include the guided tour of the De Rotterdam building or the water taxi tour.
