Euromast:

Euromast is a famous observation tower in the west part of downtown Rotterdam, next to The Park. At a height of 185m to the spire it is the 2nd tallest structure in Rotterdam (after KPN-toren). It was built in 1960.

It is very narrow on the staircase to the upper deck of the observation tower!

Euromast is member of "World Federation of Great Towers".

Delfshaven:

Delfshaven is a district in the west part of Rotterdam, that has a suburban small scale feeling with many old townhouses, canals and a windmill. It escaped the Luftwaffe bombings in 1940, that is why there are so many old buildings, it is really a contrast to downtown Rotterdam. It was originally constructed to be the harbor of the city of Delft, that is situated in the inland about 10 km from Rotterdam.
Unfortunately there were many street gangs during my visit, something I didn’t expect since it is considered the coziest part of Rotterdam. May be it had to do that it started to turn dark, I reached Deflshaven in the evening.


A university building of Hogeschool Rotterdam.




Korenmolen, one of the few windmills I saw was in Delfshaven.









Oude Kerk, the Pilgrims Father’s Church, has origins from the 1400s.

In the distance you can see the windmill and the KPN-toren.


A nice view of Delfshaven’s old canal houses, that features a “hanging” pub.



Schiedamsweg in Delfshaven. It looks nice with its old houses and foregin restaurants, but that is were most of the gangs were.



Schiedamsweg. From here I took the tram back to the central station.

This part of west Rotterdam has many old buildings that survived the bombings.


Gebouwe Delftse Poort and Milenium near the station. Going back to Amsterdam. Goodbye Rotterdam!
