Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your tour begins as you board your motorcoach for a short drive to New York Hotel. As the centerpiece of the city's renovated docklands, this trendy hotel is housed in the Art Deco-style former headquarters of the Holland-America line.

Travel past creative and modern architectural sights, including the Weena building, a brilliant white office/apartment block located in the business sector, Cafe Rotterdam, Schouwburgplein and Kop van Zuid. You'll witness Coolsingel, the main street of the central area of Rotterdam on the right bank of the Maas. At the near end of this wide street stands the Town Hall (Stadhuis), built between 1914 and 1920 in Dutch Renaissance style. View the 607-foot tall Euromast tower.

The city center also boasts pre-war architecture such as the Van Nelle Factory, one of the most important historic industrial buildings in the Netherlands, and the Huis Sonneveld. The innovative and adventurous period after the war is expressed in such structures as the Groothandelsgebouw, one of the first major buildings built after the bombing of Rotterdam in the Second World War, the Kunsthal, the Luxor Theater and the Erasmus Bridge, an almost abstract combination of steel and concrete.

Next on your itinerary is a brief walking tour of Delfshaven, a borough of Rotterdam on the right bank of river Nieuwe Maas. Delfshaven has officially only been part of Rotterdam for a little over 100 years, yet it was from here that the 'Pilgrim Fathers' set out on their epic journey to America in 1620. It's also the birthplace of Piet Heyn, a Dutch admiral and privateer for the Dutch republic in the 16th century.

Your tour continues with a photo stop at Cube Houses. Designed by Piet Blom in the '70s, the Cube Houses were intended as a post-Modern 'village.'
