And nowadays you can even sleep at the Euromast. They have two luxuries rooms with a breathtaking view. But if you don't want to spend the night here it is a nice place to get an overview of Rotterdam.
The best days to visit is when it's not to cold, windy or cloudy because then you can really enjoy the best view. You can get to the restaurant and platform by regular elevator but if this isn't enough there's more.
You could step aboard the rotating elevator which brings you to 185 meters high while listening to a narrator.
For real thrilseekers sometimes there's an opportunity to do some abseiling or rope sliding.

The Euromast was designed to mark the Floriade in 1960, when the concrete skeleton was built in just 25 days!
At the time, the 104 metre tower was the highest in the Netherlands. The narrow space tower was added ten years later, raising the Euromast even higher.
The rotating Euroscope elevator carries you soaring to the top of the Euromast, 185 metres in the air. Located at 100 metres, the restaurant was restyled by top Dutch designer Jan de Bouvrie in 2004 and offers opportunity to enjoy a light or more lavish meal. Dining at such a great height is a truly specitacular experience, with Rotterdam at your feet.
From May to the end of September, daredevils can abseil from the top of the EuromastTower.
Or check out the Discovery tour, a multimedia tour featuring all sorts of fun audio and video clips from the city's past and present.
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, 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.
It was a very windy day and I lost my bottle but Im sure the ride on the top of the euromast is a must see. The view on a grey day was pretty breathtaking. I enjoyed watching the ships/ freights on the river down below from the bar/restaraunt located on the spectators deck.
This is the 3rd restaurant tower we have visited, after Berlin and Vienna and we seem to seek out places with them now for our next vacations we enjoy them so much.
The Euromast was built for the flower and garden exhibition Floriade in 1960 and has been a popular attraction ever since. The observation deck and brasserie are 98m above the ground and there is also the Euroscoop, a glass revolving elevator that raises you up to 185m for the best view in town (included in the entrance price).
The Brasserie sounds a lot more formal than it actually is. We would have described it as a canteen. The food was ok but portions were small, make sure you get a couple of side orders too. Be prepared to wait a bit if they're busy but its a great view so its not really an issue.
Its open 7 days: 10am - 10pm.
Adults € 8.70
Children (aged 4 – 11) € 5.60
Discounts are available for other Rotterdam attractions, we got one linked with the Spido boat trip. The tower is a member of the World Federation of Great Towers which has 31 towers worldwide.
Off course you can get all the way in the Euromast. Tickets are sold for € 8,-.
You can get up to the crow's nest at 96 metres high. Here you can walk around in open air, enjoying the magnificent view over the Meuse and the city.
Here you also have a luxurious restaurant and a cafe, so you can drink some coffee, while looking over the city skyline.
But you can also get even further to the top. If you get in the Space Tower, the piece of the tower that is added later, you can get all the way up to 186 metres. A glass disc gets you up, rotating slowly all the way, so you can sit down and enjoy the view easily. A voice-over tells you everything about what you see while rotating.
Rotterdam, largest harbour in the world, has a for Dutch standard amazing skyline. Some call it even the Manhattan on the river Maas, however - having been in the real Manhattan - this makes me giggle a littel. The skyline however is impressive and is best seen from the high tower that you can see from everywhere in Rotterdam. Go to the Euromast and let yourself be rocketted to the top for a splendid view over Rotterdam (www.euromast.nl)
Take a short or longer tour through the harbour(s) with Spido. It gives you the right impression what is going on in the largest harbour in the world (www.spido.nl).
Rotterdam has many museums, theatres and touristic (or non-touristic) activities. Go to www.vvvrotterdam.nl for further information.
De Euromast (euro tower) was built in 1960 because Rotterdam was host of the Floriade at that time. For a very long time the Euromast was the tallest building in Rotterdam. Recent plans are to build a new Euromast around the old one, so that this tower can be the tallest piece of architecture in Rotterdam. It remains to be seen if these plans ever get realised, because of the high costs involved!
The Euromast: a room with a view
The Euromast ('Euro tower') was build in 1960 on the occasion of the Floriade, a large horticultural event. The upper section (the Space Tower) was added ten years later. On a clear day, the view from the top at 185 meters above sea level is spectacular, although clear days have become rare because of smog
and air pollution in general.

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.
Visit the Euromast in Rotterdam, it's great!
For a different day out, visit the Euromast. It’s easy to find, just look up and head towards it. The mast is 185 metres high & there are brilliant views across Rotterdam at the top. The Space Adventure is a surreal experience complete with disco music and lights. You can get cheese butties at the top, very nice!
Go on, be a devil and try it!
