Hello, rotterdam

Rotterdam is a young, dynamic city, continuously renewing itself at a rapid rate. Sparkling skyscrapers, an impressive port, trendy restaurants and food markets, renowned museums and awesome festivals are the direct result of the can-do mentality of the Rotterdammers. Add to that the many extraordinary attractions and city tours — by bike, bus, boat or on foot — and you understand why Rotterdam was voted Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2016.

The Luchtsingel connects Rotterdam North to the centre and revitalises a forgotten area. The project consists out of a wooden pedestrian bridge of 390 metres, The DakAkker (Urban Roof Farm) on Schieblock, a public area at the former station Hofplein and park Pompenburg. Crossing the pedestrian bridge brings you to Station Hofplein, the former station building that is now home to a number of restaurants, shops and a jazz club.

Sonneveld House

The Sonneveld House stands adjacent to Het Nieuwe Instituut. Built in the early nineteen thirties, it is one of the best-preserved houses in the Nieuwe Bouwen style, the Dutch branch of the International School of Modernism. As a visitor, you can see for yourself what it was like to live in a hypermodern home in 1933.
