Rotterdamse Dakendagen

During the Rotterdamse Dakendagen (1-4/6) you can visit the city’s rooftops. The festival’s programme is centred around utilising rooftops in creative ways, as the city becomes more crowded and space is in high demand. Designers and artists let visitors experience the different ways in which rooftops can be used to make the city more lively, sustainable and resilient to the effects of climate change. Bovenop Zuid will also transform the six football fields of space on top of shopping mall Zuidplein (1-30/6) into an art park.
