Market Hall Rotterdam


Rotterdam Market Hall: 7 days/week

To Canadian and American example, a Market Hall is located at the Rottetrdam Blaak area. Rotterdam is the Netherlands' city of architecture and therefore the Rotterdam Market Hall design is cutting edge with the shape of a giant airplane hangar. The interior of the Rotterdam Market Hall is one-of-a-kind due to the huge colourful panels on the walls and ceiling, depicting lots and lots of fruit. The front and back entrance of the Market Hall is made draught-proof by means of a huge glass facade. The indoor Market Hall in Rotterdam is multifunctional, as it offers an underground car park and luxurious apartments.

Time Stairs Market Hall Rotterdam

During the construction of the Market Hall of Rotterdam, many old remains of the medieval forerunner of the city of Rotterdam, called Rotta, were excavated. These finds (chandeliers, pots, kettles) are exhibited at the escalators. The deeper you go, the older the objects get. Guided tours at the Market Hall can be booked at De Rotterdam Tours.
