Paris has the Eiffel Tower, Berlin the Television Tower, and Rotterdam, The Euromast. A structure built in the late 1950s, after being designed by Dutch architect Huig Maaskant the tower is popular with tourists from al around the world, looking to see exactly what Rotterdam has on offer.

The original tower was erected between 1958 and 1960. It stood 100 metres high and housed the ‘Crows Nest’, which included two restaurants. One was built in the style of a theatre and the other; De Rottiserie offered a luxurious menu with silver cutlery. On the ground floor there was a café that served microwave meals, which was quite a novelty in those days.geschiedenis3_25773

As well as that, at around 30 metres, Maaskant created a replica of a ship’s bridge. It meant the public were able to experience what it was like to navigate a sea going vessel.

Back in 2004, the Hotel New York Group was introduced with the motto of ‘Everything will change, apart from the view’, in a bid to modernise the tower. With the help of an interior designer and an inviting brasserie it was instantly transformed into a wonderful catering spot in the perfect location.

The Euromast now stands at 185 metres high. This is due to the addition of the so-called Space Tower. The extension has a rotating glass gondola, which visitors can go even further up into the skyline. In clear weather you can see for up to 30 kilometres. What a beautiful sight!
