ROTTERDAM





ORIGINAL FIRST POST:



This picture was taken from the Coolhaven neighborhood. You can see the Wilhelminapier. It's kind of the Rotterdam skyscraper district. On the far left you can see the Maastower (165m) and in the middle the New Orleans (158m) and the Port Control Tower. Everything that happens in the port is being coordinated by the people working in that tower. It was designed by Lord Norman Foster. On the far right you can see the Montevideo (149m). In the middle of the picture you can see 2 cranes, soon to be 5. This is where de Rotterdam (149m) is going to fill the gap pretty soon :) I chose this picture to be the first one in this thread because this is what I see every single day when I walk from home to college and back. I always go by subway and start at the Coolhaven subwaystation. I'll try to update this thread once in a while. Enjoy :cheers:

Nice pics! I love Rotterdam's unique architectural style. It is not typically European. And of course, there's the fantastic skyline.

Yup. Funny, I never thought of it that way. I always thought that it was just plain gray but it actually isn't. And it doesn't matter how much light there is, or from what angle you take a picture of the tower. Pretty cool :)

Koningshavenbrug

This is a very special bridge. It's also called the ''Hefbrug''. Until 1993 it served the NS (Dutch Railways) and it was the main connection from Rotterdam to the South of the Netherlands. In 1993 the Willemsspoortunnel was finished. It connects underground train station Blaak to the South of the Netherlands. The tunnel has 4 railroad tracks and is about 2800 meters long. The main reason was that the Koningshavenbrug couldn't handle enough trains (only 2 railroad tracks).

36. Now the bridge is open at all times. Looks pretty cool if you ask me.



37. This is where the railroad tracks used to be.
