This a great way to get a panoramic view of Rotterdam. It was also relaxing after walking the city most of the day.
Cost is 8 Euro for adults and 5.20 Euro for children ages 4-11.
Opens at 9:30 or 10:00 depending on the season and closes at 2300hrs.
It looks as if they have added attractions to the Euromast since we were there and one of them is called rope-sliding. It looks like fun!
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.
See my rotterdam pages for more details. Euromast is open, 7 days in a week, from 10.am till 22. pm. The entries cost 8 euro per adult and 5 euro per child.There is also a small shop where you can buy a souvenir or a gift.The restaurant is on the top at 100 m, where you can eat and have a drink, and enjoy the beautiful view of this city.
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 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.
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
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.

The Euromast was built in 1960 on the occasion of the Floriade, a large horticultural event. Ten years later the Space Tower was added at the top, using the highest crane of the world of 145m .
For a long time the Euromast was the landmark and symbol of Rotterdam. I can remember that the first time I visited Rotterdam as a kid, I could see the Euromast from very far. Nowadays there are many other high buildings in the skyline of Rotterdam.
The view from the top of the Euromast at the height of 185 meter is spectacular. Especially at clear days you can look very far. There is a restaurant and a visitors platform.
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.
The crow's nest (where you find restaurants) was built at the foot of the tower and the whole 240.000 tonnes was lifted up onto the tower. The Euromast is solely for tourism and on good days you can see 30 km's far.

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
The Euromast, Rotterdam's version of Seattle's Space Needle, is the tallest building in the Netherlands: 185 meters. It costs about 6 euros per person to go on a pseudo rocket launch called Space Adventure. You can also visit a Panorama Restaurant at 100 meters and a gift shop on the ground level.
One day when we were walking past the Euromast, we suddenly realized that there were people rappelling down from the top of it. Insane!
I can think of many good ways to invest 8,30 EUR, but I am really not sure if a visit to the Euromast is among them. After a Spido boat tour, it’s the most touristy thing you can do in Rotterdam. You can use an elevator bringing you up to a height of …. From this viewing platform, you are able to see the whole city of Rotterdam. Another lift called “Giroscope” brings you up to a height of … meters. As there’s not platform at this height, the Giroscope just brings you up, extending your view upon Rotterdam: On a clear day you may even look as far as Dordrecht or Hoek van Holland. As the name says, the Giroscope is rotating on its way up and down to give everyone in the lift a chance to look in each direction. A couple of windows in the floor of the Giroscope also give you an an interesting view on the surrounding park. This ride is included in the entry fee and can be repeated as often as desired. In the few minutes you spend in the lift, you will listen to a couple of facts arounf the city of Rotterdam – in English and Dutch. To take the lift back down, you’ll have to take the lift from the level of the restaurant (from which I haven’t heard a single positive comment). The lift takes you down to a souvenir shop, where you can buy some Rotterdam and Euromast items. The view from up there is nice, but is the whole thing really worth 8,30 EUR. I am not sure…
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.
