By crossing the area in where after the the damming of the Rotte the first permanent settlement came into existance, Oude Haven will be reached.
High Rise Tour
During the eighties Rotterdam manifested itself as the first Dutch city with a skyline. Currently the highest office and dwelling buildings of our country are still located in Rotterdam. The reputation of city of high rise has historical roots: the fashion was set in 1898 by the 45 meters high office building the Witte Huis.
The City and the River
A main target for Rotterdam is the recovery of the disturbed relationship between the city and the River the Maas. During the expansion of the harbours in the past, the city gradually turned its back to the river. With the transformation of outranged harbour areas into urban zones the potention of the water can be fully utilized.
