Rotterdam is probably the most photogenic city in the Netherlands. It is no wonder that I’m regularly on top of the Euromast to make a timelapse of this beautiful city.

The city of Rotterdam is known for its ports, industry, lively cultural life and its maritime heritage. The near-complete destruction of Rotterdam’s city centre during World War II (known as the Rotterdam Blitz) has resulted in a varied architectural landscape including sky-scrapers, which are an uncommon sight in other Dutch cities.

The city is at its best around sunset, and certainly seen from the Euromast. The Euromast is an observation tower constructed between 1958 and 1960. It was specially built for the 1960 Floriade. It has a “crow’s nest” observation platform 96 m (315 ft) above-ground and a restaurant.
