Having visited Euromast more years ago than I would like to own up to, I was keen to share it with my partner during a recent visit to Rotterdam to celebrate his birthday. Needless to say, he was blown away by the whole experience, but thankfully not literally despite the windy conditions at the top! The entry procedure was efficient and we were soon into a lift and whisked to the first level. However the best was yet to come. At the next level we sat in a rotating glass enclosed “pod” that went round and up in a spiral fashion and then back down again giving an excellent and changing view of the city and port with a bi-lingual commentary. On the way down we could not resist the restaurant/café that also had an excellent view in addition to a nice menu and staff. Unusually, cash is not accepted anywhere in the building which may be worth bearing in mind if visiting with a prepaid ticket and no bank cards. We will be back to Rotterdam, with Euromast high on our itinerary.
Even if you haven't heard of Escher or know his work this is a "must-do" exhibition. The whole exhibition is well organised and displayed tastefully throughout the rooms of the old palace without seeming to be out of place and enabling one to view details about the palace as well. Lots to keep both young and old entertained throughout, especially in the interaction section on the top floor - unfortunately the museum closed at 5:00 pm otherwise we would probably still be there!! The facilities such as the cloakroom, luggage store (as for all museums large bags must be stored in free lockers before viewing the exhibition) all in excellent condition. There is a audio tour that one could download for free onto your phone but we didn't do this as the process was time consuming and required too much personal information. But an audio tour wasn't actually required since all the exhibits & works had good descriptive information in both English & Dutch
Being a bit scared of heights I would never have agreed to the top part of the mast if i knew it rotated - I am so glad I didn't, & went along with it as it was the most amazing views & experience!
Really interesting museum and factory tour. Owing to coronavirus we were the only people on the tour with an audio guide which was great. Recommend going now when it’s quiet!
die Beschriftungen der Exponate,mühsam zu lesen, insgesamt düsterer Gesamteindruck bzgl. der Lichtsituation.
