Tips for Ascension Weekend
Tips for a heavenly architecture weekend and extra days off for extra architecture. No plans yet during the long Ascension weekend? Then you’ve come to the right place! We know how to fill it in with a lot of architecture. We have put together a nice program for you.
Start your heavenly architecture weekend on Wednesday evening 29 May, the day before Ascension Day, with a story about the old West of Rotterdam. You don’t have to go back home for this: spend the night in an art object at the sustainable Culture Campsite campsite or sleep in the house of a Rotterdam architect.
On Ascension Day you get up before dawn – as you should. Not to kick a round of dew, but to get carried away by the richness of The New Garden during the Sound Walk. Then you can go into deep thinking about how you would make the city in the group exhibition called ‘The city, the city’.
On Friday you can go on a Titans tour along The Rotterdam, a water taxi, Cube Houses and the Markthal. Listen to Peter Barber ‘the architect who wants to get the neighbors singing’, as told by Oliver Wainwright, journalist at The Guardian. In the evening you can enjoy a delicious iftar meal in the penthouse on Las Palmas and spend the night in a Dakkas on top of the Thornico building. You couldn’t start the Rotterdam Rooftop Days better!

Weekend full of RAM
Visit Neuhaus on Saturday first: a real academy with rooms in which artists, designers and scientists work together on a future that is about more than mankind. Then choose one (or more) of the tours during the Rotterdam Rooftop Days: to roofs around the Coolsingel, the roofs of the ‘old masters’, the Laurenskerk and the White House, the monumental roofs of the Van Nelle Fabriek and the HAKA building or to the roofs of the tallest buildings in Rotterdam: the Delftse Poort, the WTC and the World Port Center.
End your heavenly #RAM19 weekend on Sunday. With one of the highlights of the program: a visit to the POST.
