From the observation platform on a rare clear you could see The Hague which is about 30km's to the west.
But on most days all you will get is an excellent view of the Europoort which is arguably the busiest harbour in the world.
The Euromast was specially built as an attraction for the 1960 Floriade.
It is built from with an internal diameter of 9m and 30cm thick walls. There is a "crow's nest" observation platform 96 metres above-ground with a restaurant.
The Euromast is also a member of the World Federation of Great Towers.
I walked for around abour 45 minutes to get to the Euromast one Rotterdams main tourist attractions only to get there and it was shut for refurbishment, so i was a bit on the moody side and refused to take a picture of it. Wish i had now.damn
The Euromast was the highest building in the Netherlands when it was built but later the Medical Faculty of the University of Rotterdam became higher so a further section was built on top of the Euromast to keep its rank.
When in Rotterdam, make sure you climb up the Euromast tower. You'll see all of Rotterdam and beyond underneath you. Then stop off for a coffee at their restaurant and enjoy the view. We also got the chance to see people abseiling on the tower! There is also a souvenier shop near the entrance for savouring your memories on the Euromast.
The Euromast was designed in 1960by architect Maaskant for the Floriade. First it was only one hundred meters high, eight years later 14 meters were added. In 1970 when the space tower was builded 85 meters were added in total. Today it has a height of 185 meters.
In the vicinity of Het Park, Euromast is located. This 600 ft tall tower used to be the Netherlands’s tallest building at one point. It was designed by Maaskant in 1960, when the world was crazy about tall buildings. On top of Euromast most interesting object is Space Cabin. It is open . Apr.-June and Sept., daily 10-7; Oct.-Mar., daily 10-5; July-Aug., Tues.-Sat. 10-10:30, Sun.-Mon. 10-7.
Euromast is definitely a must see/do activity while in Rotterdam. It is Holland's highest observation tower, which was built in 1960. Enjoy the view on the world's largest port and the city itself from the height of 185 meters. Great experience!
The Euromast is open all year round, but sometimes they may close during some days, last January and February it was only open on weekends.
Admissions for adults is 7.75 Euro
Can't speak from experience just yet, but when a great clear day comes along...I will go up and have a good look from above at my former city. At 185 metres it's the highest point in Nederland.
In the summer the "Euromast" is open from 10am - 7pm. And in July and August openingtimes from Tuesday - Saturday are until 10:30pm (the counter closes 30 min. before closing time). In winterseason the tower is open from 10am - 5pm.
Entrance fee is €7,75
Experience a space flight on the Euromast!
Why not make a space flight offering amazing views of Rotterdam and the world's largest port. The high speed automatic lifts are an experience in themselves. Next, experience a real rocket launch in the Space - adventure, which slowly rotates top a height of 185 metres.
The Euromast, with a height of 185 meters, is still the highest building in the Netherlands. On the tower you have a breath taking view over the city and harbour. On a clear day you can see as far as 30 kilometers.
Unfortunately the Euromast is somewhat poorly maintained. There are plans to build a new tower, much more luxury and higher. Till that time just enjoy the view! At the Panorama restaurant which is at a height of 100 meters you can get a drink or a meal (not cheap!).
Entrance is e7,50. Euromast is located in the Museumpark.
What to say about one of the most described features of Rotterdam? Get a terrific view over Rotterdam on top of the Euromast because it is the highest top lookout in The Netherlands.
It was built in 1960 in honour of the decennially organised Floriade, the greatest flower and garden show in Europe.
You can do abseilen from a height of 100 metres. The well known interior architect Jan des Bouvries is going to restyle the inside of the Euromast.

Euromast is the highest construction of the Netherlands with the height of 185 meters (year 2003).
Personally, I think it's not as good as 'Näsinneula' in my home town Tampere, worth visiting after all.
They have really made it for tourist, with the Space Adventure and all. The main platform is at about 100 meters, and from there you can take this "Space Journey" up to the 185 meters.
It gives you nice view above the city and you can also have a better view over the harbour (and industrial) area of Rotterdam from the tower than from the ground level.
The Euromast. Currently they are going to build a second one, not far from the first one. The second is going to be a lot bigger. You go up with a big elevator, (which goes very fast, and suddenly there is big noise) and then you're at promenade. For those who aren't afraid for hightes, you can go in a small cabin and this take you up for almost 600 feet. For those who want to see Rotterdam all at ones.
Rotterdam's EUROMAST, Holland's highest observation tower refuses to be topped. When first built in 1960, it towered 350 feet (100 meters) above the city. During the following decade other Dutch status seeking structures reached for the sky. But in 1970 the Euromast outstretched them all again. A Space Tower was hoisted to its hefty shoulders and today it is 605 feet (180 meters) tall.
It's a tower, from which one can see the whole Rotterdam as well as Belgium border (if weather permits) and take a space shuttle ride up to the very tower top!!!
