The Euromast Tower has now been around for over fifty years and still remains one of the best attractions in Rotterdam. Although the lifts are beginning to show their age, (specially the one to take you up to the Euroscoop) once you reach the restaurant and platform areas the finish is modern and comfortable.
We took the elevator up to the 14th level where the Restaurant is located and walked up the last flight to the viewing platforms which stand at 112 metres, where you have a magnificent view across Rotterdam. We then walked up a further level of open flight spiral stairs where you look down to nothing but the earth below (not for the faint hearted), where we gained access to the Euroscoop.
The Euroscoop is a domed shape enclosed ring that elevates and rotates, to give you a full 360 degrees view at a maximum height of 185 metre. Thanks to our guide (free with the Euroscoop which was also no extra cost), he pointed out all the main places there was to see, which extended all the way out to the Hague and apparently Amsterdam on a very clear day.
We returned to the Platform level in an old and slow elevator before having lunch in the Restaurant. This was great place for a meal, with comfortable seating and a fantastic view but the food was nothing to write home about (we had Chicken Noodle Soup that seemed to have lost the Chicken and Beef Croquettes with no beef in evidence!).
All in all, this is a must for anyone visiting Rotterdam and if you buy a day ticket for the Water Buses (that network the areas around the city) you get half price entry to the Tower (correct at time of publishing).
