Begins with a scenic drive past creative and modern architectural sights, including the so-called Kop van Zuid, the White House and the oldest harbour (since 1270). Witness Coolsingel, the main street of the central area of Rotterdam on the right bank of the Maas. At the near end of this wide street stands the Town Hall (Stadhuis), built between 1914 and 1920 in Dutch Renaissance style. The city centre also boasts pre-war architecture. The innovative and adventurous period after the war is expressed in such structures as the Groothandelsgebouw, one of the first major buildings built after the bombing of Rotterdam in the Second World War which stands next to the modern Central Station. See the latest icon, the Depot, in the Musea area. Your tour continues with a photo stop at the Cube Houses and the Market Hall, where the very beginning of Rotterdam took place. Here is also the birthplace of the famous humanist Erasmus.
