We are part of an Architectural Practice from Dublin and our visit was intended to take in the most recent developments in Rotterdam. I had lived there between 1979-1982 and the developments over a short span was enormous. From the redevelopment of the train station as an Iconic building in a short period to the Markthal building and the new high rise office building De Rotterdam made for an interesting architectural with the historic footnotes added. Anet was a great host and interesting with her comments and observations with her added book material to illustrate her points with regard to history and place. The tour itself can only cover a small part of the architectural past that is Rotterdam but lots of exciting building are in the pipeline for a progressive city. The water taxi ride was novel to us and an interesting break form the architectural jargon which may be alien to some tourists.

Wonderful city of Rotterdam Nice public transport Well organized The discount on various museums is also recommended Top

Very convenient. The only disadvantage is the period of validity
