Paris has the Eiffel Tower, Brussels has the Atomium and Rotterdam has the Euromast. Architect Maaskant designed the Euromast in 1960 on the occasion of the Floriade, the world horticultural expo. It’s still one of Rotterdam’s main features and icons.

Building the Euromast

The tower was 'only' 100 meters high at the time. Eight years later the medical faculty topped it by 14 meters. It was decided to increase the height of the Euromast by 85 meters by building the Space Tower, which was finished in 1970.

Adventure and Romance in Rotterdam

Prepare for an adventure when you visit the Euromast. Take the super-fast automatic lifts to the platforms and enjoy the view from which you can see as far as The Hague and Antwerp (Belgium) on a clear day. Then it’s time to start abseiling back down! Do make reservations well in advance, because the abseiling adventure is very popular. Those who are  in a more romantic mood can also dine at the top of the tower, sleep in one of the suites and wake up with the spectacular view.
