For the best views in Rotterdam, head for Euromast, an observation tower built for the first Floriade International Flower Exhibition in 1960. Stretching 185 meters into the sky, with an observation platform and posh brasserie at 96 meters, the tower is Rotterdam's highest structure. Along with 360° city panoramas, vistas encompass Antwerp, Moerdijk and The Hague on clear days.
You can whiz up in a high-speed elevator that reaches 100 meters in just 30 seconds. Better yet, take the stairs that wind to the top of this member of the World Federation of Great Towers, gawking at sweeping views of Rotterdam, as well as abseilers with no fear of heights, rope sliding down the building.
