About the area
The Euromast was built in 1960, with its 107 meter it was the tallest building of the city at the time. It has become a symbol of the city and now stand 185 meters tall, but it’s much more than just a tall building with a nice view. You can have diners, parties and even sleep here. Definity worth a visit.
We often find the Erasmusbrug on postcards and not without reason. the Erasmusbrug is over 800 meters long, it’s the perfect connection between the northern and southern shore of Rotterdam. Often called the ‘’de Zwaan’’ (the Swan) it’s 15 meters tall.
The market hall was opened in 2014 and is the largest indoor market in the Netherlands. You can find a diverse offer of shops, bars and market stalls here . If you love modern architecture or food you this is a place you must visit.
Zuiderpark is the biggest city park in Rotterdam being over 200 hectare. You can come here to relax when you have seen enough of the busy streets. But there are also a lot of sportive activities and events.
The crew of the Eendracht consist of experienced sailors. The skipper and his crew are all professionals with lots of experience sailing on all kinds of ship. They are volunteers who love what they do. The combined knowledge of the crew is something truly impressive.
