History of the Euromast
This iconic building was opened on 25 March 1960 on the occasion of the Floriade, a flower and horticultural exhibition held in the park next to the Euromast. It was designed by the architect H.A. Maaskant and contractor J.P. van Eesteren. The tower had to represent a ship's mast with a bridge and a crow's nest. The tower was given a replica of a ship's bridge at a height of 32 meters. In the crow's nest (at a height of 100 meters) is a restaurant. In 2004 the Euromast was given a new look, thanks to Hotel New York Group everything but the view changed. The restaurant got a new interior, making it a unique restaurant on a unique location in Rotterdam. In the first ten years more than 6 million visitors came to the Euromast to enjoy the view, when the weather is clear there is a view up to 30 kilometers away.
The view tower called Euromast originates from the word: 'Euro', because Rotterdam is in the heart of the Euromarkt area and 'mast', because not only the Dutch know what that is, but the countries England, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Denmark also write mast.
In the sixties the Euromast was the tallest building in Rotterdam with a height of 100 meters (excluding flagpole of 15 meters high). At the time, this was enough to tower above the skyline of the Maasstad. But Rotterdam's pride was overtaken on the left and right by other buildings. In 1970 the Euromast struck back. With the installation of the Space Tower, eighty-five meters were added. This made the Euromast the highest building in Rotterdam.
