The walk passes a large number of buildings of monumental value. Here is a summary of some that you will come across. Millenium tower (Weena 686), Delftse Poort (Weena 505). Rotterdam Municipal House (Coolsingel 40): The Rotterdam City Hall on Coolsingel. Who doesn't know it? It was designed by Prof. Henri Evers, architect and professor in Delft. Before the first pile went into the ground in 1914, the neighborhood that had been located at that location had to be demolished. On 15 June 1918, construction had progressed to such an extent that the first department (the Housing Service) could move to Coolsingel. The City Hall was completed on August 10, 1920. It is one of the few buildings in the center of Rotterdam that have withstood the bombing of May 14, 1940. Maritime museum: The Maritime Museum Rotterdam (Leuvehaven 1) is a shipping and harbor museum in the center of Rotterdam. The museum was previously known as the Maritime Museum Prince Hendrik. The museum was founded in 1873 around the collection of ship models of the Royal Dutch Yacht Club, of which Prince Hendrik (1820-1879) chaired. Haven museum (Leuvehaven 50): The collection of Het Havenmuseum gives a good impression of the port of Rotterdam between 1850 and 1970. The fully operational historical vessels, steam engines and ship engines revive earlier times in this 'working' museum. Along the quay of the Leuvehaven the historic ships surprise you. If you walk under the Erasmus bridge you will come to the Wereld museum Rotterdam: Willemskade 25, former Yacht club, Wereldmuseum 1851, architcht:. The clubhouse of the royal Dutch Yachtclub was the meeting point of the Rotterdam elite. Harbor barons and other notable people met and were able to follow the races on the water from the balcony. After the club was dissolved in 1878, the building was used as a museum. At the city park is the Euromast (Parkhaven 20): The Euromast was erected by architect HA Maaskant and contractor JP van Eesteren on the occasion of the Floriade in 1960 in the Park, near the entrance to the Maas tunnel. The building was officially opened by Princess Beatrix on March 25, 1960. The location was strategically chosen: those who drove to Rotterdam on the then highways saw the (including flagpole) 107-meter-high tower in front of the city. But the city grew and the buildings became higher. After a few years, buildings rose above the Euromast. You will pass the Erasmus Hospital in the Museum Park. There lies, among other things. Boijmans van Beuningen (Museum Park 18-20): The museum designed by the city architect Van der Steur fitted in well with WG Witteveen's 1926 Dijkzigt expansion plan. Chabot Museum (Museum Park 11): This white villa, designed by Leonard Stokla, a former employee of architect Kromhout, for the Kraaijeveld family. Due to the round balcony and awning, this villa looks more light-hearted than the adjacent villas. The second floor was added in 1972 by architect Ernest Groosman. In 1993 the building was converted into a museum dedicated to the Rotterdam expressionist painter / sculptor Hendrik Chabot. Since 2000 the building is a national monument. Netherlands Architecture Institute (Museumpark 25): The Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAi) is a Archive, Museum, Library and Cultural Stage in one. In the NAI, important archives and collections of Dutch architects from after 1800 are kept and made accessible to the public. Schouwburgplein: Schouwburgplein is one of the less successful parts of the Basic Plan for the Reconstruction of Rotterdam from 1946. Before the war, Schouwburgplein was a densely populated urban district. This district burned down in May 1940, except for the buildings on Mauritsweg. During the war, an emergency theater was built in the open space of chipped stones from the city center.
