Let us take you down into Rotterdam’s underground. Meet the unknown, dark side of the city and hear the stories from the operators of public works themselves.
On Saturday, June 14, you can join an expedition into the depths of the Maastunnel and get acquainted with the control room, ground tunnel and the fans hall. The expedition will then take you to the underground water storage (OWB) of the Museumpark. This water retention facility can store up to 10.000 m³, representing half of the storage capacity of the sewer system in the center of Rotterdam.
Hint: Conclude your tour with a visit to the Kunsthal Rotterdam, where the underground has its very own gallery in the exhibition URBAN BY NATURE–
