Rotterdam Rooftop Walk Ossip van Duivenbode

Rotterdam Rooftop Walk hangs over the Coolsingel

The most spectacular element of the Rotterdam Rooftop Walk is the part that hangs over the Coolsingel. The 60 meter long aerial bridge is now in place. The almost 30 meter high air bridge connects the roofs of the Bijenkorf and WTC Rotterdam, which are part of the 600 meter roof walk.

With the highlight Rotterdamse Dakendagen wants visitors to experience the future of the city. In which roofs house greenery, art, housing, recreation, food production, the generation of energy, and more.

The Rotterdam Rooftop Walk is open daily from Ascension Day 26 May until 24 June from 10 AM to 8 PM. The event works with time slots. Admission costs €3.50, children go free. For tickets and information visit this link

Creating Rotterdam Rooftop Walk

The design of the route is a collaboration between architects MVRDV and Rotterdamse Dakendagen. Executed in scaffolding material by Dutch Scaffolding. The walk starts with a set of stairs on Beursplein to the monumental roof of WTC Rotterdam. The crossing of the Coolsingel takes place via a 60-meter-long air bridge. Swinging across the roof of the Bijenkorf, the route then ends on the roof of the Q-Park next to the department store. After that, the public descends into the Aert van Nesstraat, via a scaffolding staircase along the facade of the building. Visitors experience how the space on flat city roofs can be better utilized.
