Temporary lookout celebrates 75th anniversary of Rotterdam's reconstruction
Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb is opening The Stairway on Stationplein on Monday. The Stairway is a 29 meter high scaffolding installation containing 180 steps that lead to the roof of the Groot Handelsgebouw, which was turned into a temporary lookout.
The temporary structure was built to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Rotterdam's reconstruction after being bombed in World War II, the Telegraaf reports. The Stairway will be open to the public until June 12th. Opening times are between 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. daily and admission is free.
The lookout offers views of the harbor cranes, the new city, Noord and Blijdorp.
