The best time to experience Rotterdam is during the Rotterdam Rooftop Days. From 1 to 3 June 2018, you can discover the most beautiful views of the city, take part in one-of-a-kind events on rooftops and see places that aren’t normally open to the public.
Not only going on the rooftops, but also the programme itself is well worth a trip to Rotterdam. Here are some really special events for you:
- Iftar on the roof
Discover the rich, culinary culture of the city with a special Ramadan meal after sunset. Non-fasting visitors are also more than welcome to enjoy a special night filled with interesting guest speakers, delicious food and music.
- Theatre on the roof
Several rooftops on and near Witte de Withstraat transform into a stage for young theatre talent from Rotterdam. Get ready for a full night of entertainment. With the help of headphones you can choose which of the performances on the rooftops you would like to listen to.
- Sleeping on a roof
A slumber party on a rooftop? Why not! Stay the night with Rooftop Urban Sleep Spaces on top of former railway station Hofplein. You’ll stay in one of the special objects. Are you more of a camper? No problem, campsite ‘De Konijnenberg’ is open for a sleepover at the Rotterdam Rooftop Park.
- Yoga on the roof
Do you need a moment for yourself? During Yoga on the block – Kick-Off at former railway station Hofplein you can find complete peace on Saturday. On Sunday you can also follow a yoga lesson on the rooftop of the Doelen concert hall on Schouwburgplein.
- Cinema on the roof
Trouble sleeping? Watch a movie! The Pleinbioscoop, as well as Rooftop Screenings Stroom and Roffa Mon Amour show several movies on rooftops. The first is on the roof of the popular department store ‘The Bijenkorf’, the second is on the roof of STROOM. Enjoy the likes of True Romance by Tony Scott.
- Parties & concerts on the roof
Musicians and DJs will give a star performance on the highest rooftops of Rotterdam. There is going to be music by Klangstof and Sodade, but also time to dance sensually to Kizomba.
Apart from these 6 must-do’s, there is plenty more to discover during the Rotterdam Rooftop Days. Check out the full programme on the website of the Rotterdam Rooftop Days!
