Witte Huis

Rotterdam's Witte Huis was the continent's first skyscraper, built in 1898. Standing ten stories tall and 43 meters (147 feet) high, this Art Nouveau building may seem modest by contemporary standards, but was unique at the time of its construction - Europe's very first high-rise. The glazed-brick exterior is tastefully embellished with sculptures and mosaics typical of the Art Nouveau aesthetic. Its unprecedented height, inspired by American office buildings, spurred the industrial culture that characterized Rotterdam in the early 20th Century. One of the few original structures to have survived the bombing of Rotterdam on May 14, 1940, the Witte Huis is recognized as a National Heritage Site and is protected by UNESCO.

Euromast

Até poucos anos atrás, o Euromast era o maior ponto da Holanda. Com 185 metros de altura, o Euromast é certamente uma vista impressionante com as torres sob a cidade. Enquanto caminha dentro do Euromast, você encontrará uma exposição maravilhosa das mais famosas do mundo, torres tão altas quanto a Torre Eiffel, as antigas torres gêmeas do World Trade Center, o edifício Empire State, etc. No piso térreo há também uma pequena loja de presentes para aqueles interessados em comprar miniaturas dos verdadeiros. O próximo nível da torre é acessado por elevador. Aqui você encontrará um restaurante excelente com uma das melhores vistas de Roterdã. Depois que escurece, a vista é absolutamente inacreditável, e o nível superior é onde você encontrará uma viagem de foguete simulada. A "cabine espacial" comandada por foguetes-retrô levará você direto ao topo do Euromast - uma grande aventura para as crianças (e a mamãe e o papai não vão achar ruim também).

Kinderdijk

Kinderdijk is a charming Dutch village in the Alblasserwaard polder that is best known for its cluster of 18th-century windmills, the largest collection of this kind in the Netherlands. These 19 windmills were built between 1738-1740 when it became apparent that steps would have to be taken to manage water levels in the Alblasserwaard polder to keep it from flooding. These windmills were used to pump water out of the polder, working together as a cohesive system that bears testament to the ingenious water management of the Dutch. Few things are as emblematic of the Dutch heritage as the windmill, which is why it is not surprising that the Windmills of Kinderdijk are recognized as a World Heritage Site. Amid the rural landscape of Alblasserwaard, these charming, historic windmills attract numerous visitors each year, drawn to the picturesque sight of their soaring sails against the fields and open sky.

Gouda

While this small market town is most famous for its cheeses, Gouda's rich history and landmarks also make it a very popular day trip destination from Rotterdam. In fact, the cheese is not even made in Gouda; it is made in the surrounding region and is traded in Gouda's strict markets. Visit these existing cheese markets, held every Thursday. Near the market you'll find City Hall, built in the late 1440s, which is one of the oldest Gothic city halls in the Netherlands. across from City Hall is the Waag, a weigh house built in 1667, that is now a national monument. Don't miss the stained glass on the largest cross-shaped church in the country, Saint John Church. The town is easily reached by train and highway; take a day and relish in the history. And pick up some cheese.

St. Janskerk

Localizada na bela e histórica aldeia de Gouda, a Igreja St. Jan (ou a Grande Igreja como as vezes é chamada) é o monumento principal da cidade. É mundialmente famosa por seus vitrais do Século XVI, o Goudse Glazen (vidros de Gouda). A igreja contém metade desses vitrais, em particular, de toda a Holanda. Com a conclusão de sua reconstrução em 1593, ela foi renovada em sua forma atual de uma cruz basílica, tornando-a, com 123 metros, a mais longa igreja da Holanda.
