“Historical building with a nice view.”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

The St. Laurenskerk is one of the few lucky buildings in the city centre of Rotterdam to have survived WWII. It stands in the middle of an area that is full of development. With interesting architecture from the past decades on all sides. On some days it's possible to climb to the top of this catholic church and enjoy the view.

Reviewed 14 January 2014

http://www.laurenskerkrotterdam.nl/museum/rondleidingen_en_educatie/torenbeklimming/

Times (from April untill October)
Wednesday: 14:00 Hours
Saterday: 13:00 and 15:00 Hours

It's really worth the visit! You have a wonderful view over the Rotterdam city center while standing in the middle of it. Wonderful views towards the skyscrapers around you. You also get an amazing view over the brand new iconic Markthal nearby. One of the few buildings in the city center to have survived (even though heavily damaged and restored afterwards) the bombing during WWII. Recently beautifully renovated.
