Discover the Old Port and the White House

The White House. Architect Willem Molenbroek designed the building in Art Nouveau style on 'American' reads. However, it became a brick tower and not a steel structure, as was used in America. The building was fully equipped: central heating, electric light and a telephone exchange for the tenants! The White House, once the tallest office building in Europe, survived the bombing of Rotterdam in 1940 as one of the few buildings in the city center. The Old Port, one of the oldest ports in the Netherlands, is home to a large fleet of historic sailing ships. Around the harbor numerous sights, an old shipyard and many places of entertainment.
