First visitors walk 30-meter high open air bridge during Rotterdam festival
Starting Thursday, people will be able to cross from the rooftop of department store De Bijenkorf, high above the Coolsingel, to the WTC Rotterdam via a 30-meter-high bridge connecting the buildings. The Rotterdam Rooftop Walk, as the one-off project is called, is a collaboration with architectural firm MVRDV and is organized by the annual festival Rotterdamse Dakendagen.

Visitors to the 60-meter-long bridge can cross the Coolsingel for a month beginning on Ascension Day. The price for adults is 3.50 euros. Children may cross the bridge for free.
Rotterdamse Dakendagen will take place this year from 3 to 5 June. During the festival, visitors can traverse up to the roof via routes in more than 30 locations to discover how space can be used in a surprising way, or to simply enjoy the view over the city.
