Rotterdam is the high-rise city of the Netherland. Rotterdam has a high-rise tradition and striking examples form the Witte Huis from 1898 that was once the first skycraper of Europe, and the Zalmhaventoren that will be the tallest building of the Benelux.

Rotterdam skyscrapers are mainly concentrated in three areas. Firstly we must mention the Wilhelminapier where you can find many interesting buildings like the Maastoren (the tallest building of the Netherlands), the tower New Orleans (the tallest residential tower of the Netherlands) and the huge building De Rotterdam (the largest building of the Netherlands) by Rem Koolhaas. Secondly we can mention the Weena that contains office high-rise from the nineties like the still impressive Delftse Poort, among others. Thirdly, we have the new high-rise destination Wijnhaveneiland with its striking The Red Apple, where at this moment a lot of high-rise activity is going on.
