Overview
More
The Markthal (English: Market Hall) is a residential and office building with a market hall, located in Rotterdam. The building was opened on October 1, 2014, by Queen Máxima of the Netherlands. Besides the large market hall, the complex houses 228 apartments, 4600 m2 retail space, 1600 m2 horeca and an underground 4-storey parking garage with a capacity of 1200+ cars. The Markthal was designed by architectural firm MVRDV. The grey nature stone building has an archwise structure like a horseshoe. The building has a glass facade on both sides, these are made up of smaller glass windows. The smaller windows are mostly squared and around 1485 millimeters wide. All of these are hung around a structure of steel cables, 34 metres high and 42 metres wide, which makes it the largest glass-window cable structure in Europe. Each facade has 26 vertical and 22 horizontal cables. The inside of the building is an 11.000 m2 artwork by Arno & Iris Coenen, named Hoorn des Overvloeds (Horn of Plenty).

If you like to try different types of food this is the place to visit. We tried several restaurants and cafes all were excellent. Lots of Halal restaurants also. Some vendors sold olives, sausages, fruits, cheese ... Worth a visit for food lovers

It is 2.2km walk. If you have the time: join the views of/from the Erasmusbrug and Leuvenhaven #Recommended Terminal -> Erasmusbrug -> straight to Leuvenhaven -> right on Blaak -> Markthal
