Euromast: a landmark and a destination

The Euromast has been an internationally renowned icon in Rotterdam since 1960. With a height of 185 metres, it is one of the highest buildings in the city and offers a unique 360-degree perspective. This special Rotterdam icon is a popular (tourist) attraction that attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Moreover, the Euromast also has a brasserie where you can have lunch, (literally) high tea or dinner while you watch the city below. And, if you're up for a total experience, you could even spend the night at the Euromast in one of their suites.

Excitement and thrills at high altitude

Looking for a unique outing to test your courage? Then the Euromast in Rotterdam is the place to be. For the real daredevils, there is a special activity to do from May till September: the highest rappelling point in all of Europe! From the viewing platform at 100 metres height, you step over the balustrade and let yourself sink down while looking out over the city. 

You don't need any experience to rappel from the Euromast, but you do need some guts, of course. The adrenaline rush you get from it is more than worth it, and you will be rewarded with the most beautiful view of Rotterdam. The experienced and certified instructors guarantee safety, because participants are always secured with climbing belts and wear protective gloves. After an instruction, you can start stepping over the balustrade, which for many is the most exciting part.

The descent takes about 15 minutes, during which you hang free from the building for the most part and determine yourself how fast you go. Rappelling is an ideal activity for an exciting company outing, bachelor day or even for an original romantic date.

Coffee bar and concept store

The Euromast is often seen as a tall tower with a viewing platform, but there's actually plenty to do at the Euromast, before or after rappelling. For example, there's a coffee bar and concept store on the ground floor, which are free to visit. At the coffee bar, you can go for a coffee break and grab a snack or get something to go and enjoy in the park where the Euromast is located. At the concept store, a mix of products by Rotterdam icons is available.

Euromast viewing platform and Euroscoop

You can also go higher up by taking the elevator to the viewing platform at 100 metres. Or step into the Euroscoop (pronounced as Euro scope). At 185 metres, you can admire the 360-degree view while rotating, which even allows you to see as far as the port of Rotterdam, The Hague, and Delft.

The Euromast not only offers astonishing views over Rotterdam, but the attraction has added a real 'thrill experience' to the Euroscoop. During a ride with the Euroscoop, you see the city and its surroundings from all angles, while the glass floor beneath you becomes transparent. As a result, it feels as if you are floating above Rotterdam! It's an exciting experience, supported by a light show, sound effects, and music until you reach the top at a height of 185 metres.

The ride, which lasts about 7 minutes, offers a 360-degree perspective of Rotterdam. A voice-over simultaneously informs you about the vibrant city, its inhabitants, the diversity, and the impact of the enormous harbour area. The brand new and intelligent glass floor, which transitions from opaque to transparent, makes a ride with the Euroscoop even more enjoyable. Do you dare?
