Trip Planner: Europe / The Netherlands / South Holland Province / Rotterdam / Sightseeing / Beurs - World Trade Center
Beurs-World Trade Center is located on the Coolsingel and Beursplein in the centre of Rotterdam.It is a major business centre in Rotterdam with approximately 200 offices. The building is 93 meters high. The center is a member of the international World Trade Centers Association.HistoryBeurs-WTC's history dates back to 1598, the year the first Rotterdam Beurs was founded. This fair proved extremely successful. Later lack of space led to the creation of larger exhibition buildings of which the building at the Westnieuwland was the longest existing (1736–1940). This building was designed by Adriaen van der Werff.The low-rise of the current fair complex was designed by architect J. F. Staal with interiors by Margaret Staal-Kropholler and was built between 1936 and 1940. In the Rotterdam Blitz on 14 May 1940 the exhibition centre took a number of hits, but the damage could be repaired quickly. In 1941, the Stock Exchange reopened on Coolsingel. This building with many features included not only many trade fairs but also shops, conference rooms, a bar and offices.In 1973 an extra floor was added to the low-rise building. Architect of this expansion is Arthur Staal, the son of JF Staal. There is also a catering establishment which carries the name "Staal". There are many business people their daily lunch in the restaurant on the second floor, or in summer on the terrace below and to the Coolsingel Beursplein. On the third floor, still room language, the former meeting room of the Chamber of Commerce. This is now used for weddings, conferences, parties, etc.Work out when and for how long to visit Beurs - World Trade Center and other Rotterdam attractions using our handy Rotterdam trip builder.

Monumentaal gebouw met strakke architectuur. Mooi verlicht 's avonds. Niet erg hoog maar de moeite waard om er eens binnen te wandelen.Listed building with tight architecture. Nicely lit at night. Not very high but well worth it once inside.View original

Fantastic entertainment space and function area. Crazy high prices at the bar and only sold beer and nothing else! However, a great space in the heart of rotterdam.
Exeptionally looking building. Standing right next to it gives realisation how small you are ^^
Nice location; the stairs in front of the door are very nice to sit and relax while you are waiting for the doors to open.
