It’s not for nothing that Rotterdam is called Manhattan on the Maas. Tall buildings dot the skyline of this city. This tower may not be the highest, but it’s certainly unique. It boasts the only revolving restaurant in town and, at 42-metres altitude, you’ll experience an amazing meal with a spectacular view over the city. The UFO Restaurant goes up five times a day, for brunch (10am, €25), lunch (12pm, €25), high tea (2:30pm, €25) and dinner (5pm and 7:30pm, €45). The delicious buffet is an all-inclusive affair, and so for one and a half hours you can eat and drink as much as you like. Afraid of heights? There is also a restaurant downstairs with a big terrace. UFO is just the first part of a whole new amusement park on the site of a former waste incinerator. When it opens in 2020, Attractiepark Rotterdam will feature playgrounds, rollercoasters, slides and restaurants.
