    This is a strange building. The Maastunnel seems to be quite an emblematic monument of Rotterdam!

A strange building. It took me quite some time before I realise what it is...

My experience, Explo description: 

The Maastunnel connects the banks of the Nieuwe Maas. This tunnel is very busy : 75,000 cars use it daily : so there is a huge need of aeration system huh!

At each entrance of the tunnel, you can see the aeration towers, built in a nice Art Déco style (the tunnel constrauction started in1937 and finished in 1942 during German occupation.

You can’t visit the inside of the tower.

My personal recommendations: 

The Maastunnel is also for pedestrians. So you can visit by feet. It is worth a look (impressive escalators), but unfortunately I didn’t have time to visit it !

How getting there: 

Parkhaven street on the South West side of the Het park.

A tip to sleep: 

At the close and funny Chinese boat hotel. (this is where I slept).

Useful information:

Visit duration:

Entry fees:
