There are symbolic towers that can watch the city from a bird's eye view in many cities of Europe. Just as there are Paris's Eiffel Tower, Brussels's Atomium, so there is Euromast of Rotterdam, which is Holland's architectural capital. It is a good choice to see the city of Rotterdam from a height of 100 meters.
Euromast, which was only 100 meters high during when it was built firstly, was completed between 1958 and 1960. The Space Tower, which was added in 1970 with renovation works, added 85 meters to the height of Euromast.
Euromast, which can be seen from almost everywhere in Rotterdam today, is an important center of attraction especially with lightings that is made when it is dark.
The tower that architect Maaskant designed in the flower and gardening exhibition is on records as the most recognizable symbol of the city of Rotterdam.
Pleasure of eating in the restaurant of the tower which enable looking the city from a bird's eye view by observation platform located at an altitude of 100 m, is merely felt by experiencing.
Den Hag (The Hague) and Antwerp (Belgium) cities can be easily seen from the platform which is gone up by the high-speed, two stage elevators, when it is a clear day. The height of 100 meters that can be reached in a short time like 30 seconds, get you to an incredible view.
In this magnificent view, it is offered that the possibility of chancing to turn Holland trip into an unforgettable adventure in suites that whether you can eat an evening meal or spend the night while enjoying Rotterdam.
