Van Nelle factory: World heritage in glass and steel
The Van Nelle factory was named “most beautiful building in Rotterdam” in 2019.
With staggering walls of glass and steel, iconic red letters, characteristic transport bridges and the ‘bonbon box’ on its roof (which affords an impressive view over the city), the Van Nelle factory is known in Rotterdam and worldwide for its unique appearance. In addition to its outer beauty, the Van Nelle factory also has a special story to tell. This story can be discovered in a book that has been published in cooperation with the municipality of Rotterdam.
Illustrated with beautiful photos and historical visual material, the book brings the history of the Van Nelle factory to life.
Now available, online and in stores (Donner, among others)
