CNN has named ‘ de Markthal’ as one of the ten buildings that you must see in 2014! And from a distance we can understand why. After The Cubes apartments, The Erasmus Bridge and The new Central Station, Rotterdam is one beautiful piece of architecture richer. The wait is over because today is the official opening of de Markthal.
A covered market is something new in The Netherlands. Rotterdam is the first city in Holland with an official covered market. The Market hall will not replace the weekly market at Rotterdam Blaak but instead you should see it more as a ‘Food Walhalla’, with fresh fish, bread, cheese and other delicious things. 100 fresh unite, 15 food shops, 8 restaurants all under one roof. But there’s more. The Market Hall is not only a gigantic ‘Food Walhalla’ there are also 228 apartments. One place for: shopping, working, enjoyment and living. We foodies honestly can’t wait for the opening and will definitely check it out today. Stay tuned, because we will share our thoughts about the Market Hall soon with you guys!
