Dudok architecture walk

If you are looking for a special way to discover Rotterdam's architecture, AroundTown offers the unique Dudok tour. Known as the city of architecture, Rotterdam has an impressive skyline with iconic buildings such as the Erasmus Bridge, The Vertical City at Kop van Zuid, the Market Hall and the recently opened Stadstimmerhuis. Moreover, many internationally renowned architects live and work in the city. But not only contemporary architects have contributed to Rotterdam's urban splendour. Dutch architect and urban planner Willem Marinus Dudok, for instance, also left his signature in the city.

One of the highlights of Dudok's work was the design of De Bijenkorf department store in Rotterdam. At its opening in 1930, it attracted as many as 70,000 spectators. Unfortunately, the building was badly damaged during the bombing of 14 May 1940. Fortunately, there is another special Dudok building to admire in Rotterdam.

In 1991, the first Dudok branch in Rotterdam opened its doors in a building also designed by Willem Marinus Dudok. The building's characteristic design led to the Grandcafe being named after the architect. Dudok Rotterdam is not only famous for its architecture, but also for its delicious apple pie according to a secret recipe. It is a true city brasserie that embraces the city's art, culture and residents. So, if you want to experience Rotterdam both architecturally and culinarily, Dudok is definitely worth a visit!

    What others say about us

    “Perfect team building in corona time. We played ‘the Rotterdam game’ with our team, and everyone was enthusiastic and also very fanatical! (Also because you could ‘track’ the other teams) Fun questions that were a challenge even for the rasrotterdammers and also adding our own locations and questions was no problem for the organisation. Everything was well organised and also a big thumbs up for the communication beforehand and all the extra tablets so we could play in smaller teams.

    Super fun package in the heart of Rotterdam!

    Nice location and super fun game! Instructions could have been a bit clearer for the game and guidance could have been a bit better with setting up the equipment etc. Also, the number of people had not been communicated properly, which meant there were not enough chairs for meeting. Nevertheless, it was a really fun morning!
