During the Rotterdam Rooftop Walk, which takes place from May 26 to June 24 2022, you can enjoy a route at rooftop level, including a skybridge between WTC Rotterdam and the Bijenkorf.

The design is a collaboration between the Rotterdamse Dakendagen and the architectural firm MVRDV. Below you can read about this amazing event!

Rotterdamse dakendagen 2022

All Rotterdammers are familiar with the annual Rotterdamse Dakendagen (Rotterdam Rooftop Days), but this year there will be a large, one-off rooftop event. Rotterdamse Dakendagen organizes the 'Rotterdam Rooftop Walk', a route on the roofs of Rotterdam including a spectacular skybridge between WTC Rotterdam and the Bijenkorf.

A month of crossing the Coolsingel

You can make the spectacular crossing above the Coolsingel for a month. On Ascension Day, the first lucky visitors go up.

The Rotterdam Rooftop Walk takes place during the Rotterdam Architecture Month in 2022, when the innovative power and quality of architecture in the city is celebrated with festivals, exhibitions and lectures.

More than just a pretty view

Of course you will be amazed during this special walk. But a unique view is certainly not all that the Rotterdam Rooftop Walk has to offer. While you walk over and between the roofs, you experience how innovative roof use contributes to a better future for cities and city dwellers.

The sky bridge is accessible for a small price and children can join for free. Check out the Rotterdamse Dakendagen website for more practical information.

Admire street art by Leon Keer

Something you should not miss during the Rotterdam Rooftop Walk is the latest artwork by artist Leon Keer. The work can be seen from an elevation on the top deck of the Q-park Bijenkorf parking garage. His work of 1300 m2 shows the underwater world, with which he wants to pay attention to biodiversity. In eight days he completed the work together with Massina and Gregor Wosik.
