    Rotterdam equals architecture!
    Rotterdam is world famous for its modern architecture which you can find anywhere within the city. Rotterdam is thus home to many design museums and leading architectural firms which are involved in the design of famous buildings and bridges in major cities around the globe. Rotterdam is constantly working on ambitious new architectural projects in and around the city to remain the number one city of modern architecture. This vibrant city is constantly changing and you can feel and see these changes all around.

    The cradle of modern architecture
    Once you leave the Central Station you will understand why Rotterdam is called the Dutch capital of modern architecture. The brand new Rotterdam Central Station is an architectural highlight and the Millennium Tower opposite to the station has the looks of the Empire State building in New York. The Delftse Poort building is the highest office building in the Netherlands! In the heart of Rotterdam city centre you can't miss the extraordinary Cube Houses. The Brug (Bridge) office building is another architectural highlight of Rotterdam, because it is built at a height of 25 meters above an existing historic plant. The Shipping and Transport College is located in a stunning periscope shaped building!

    Architecture at Wilhelmina Pier Rotterdam
    The skyline of Rotterdam with the Erasmus Bridge across the river Maas is a real eye catcher. The nearby Wilhelmina Pier contains lots of modern architecture and skycrapers, such as the Toren op Zuid (South Tower) which contains a matrix emitting green lights, the hypermodern New Luxor Theatre, the skyscrapers Montevideo, Maas Tower, New Orleans and last but not least the Rotterdam Building, the biggest building of the Netherlands. The contrast between these modern skyscrapers and the historic Hotel New York makes Wilhelminapier a photo hotspot of Rotterdam.
