The Accompanying persons program consists of a 3-hour tour visiting the south bank of the Nieuwe Maas. The tour will stop at various highlights that the city has to offer and will be guided by our city connaisseur Vincent Cardinaal.
To start, the tour will take off with a unique round trip by water taxi departing from Mullerpier / Sint-Jobshaven for a special view of the skyline on the north bank, the south bank and the city ports from the water.
The water taxi will drop the participants off at the stop Wilhelminapier / Hotel New York for a walk through the city borough of Wilhelminapier.
Here the tour will visit the Dutch Photo Museum in a converted warehouse.
The two expected exhibitions are:
* Horst P. Horst – Photographer of style
* Mattijs van Bergen – Photo to Fashion.
After these impressions, it is time for a coffee and cake in ‘The Rotterdam’, the vertical city by OMA in the bar of the nhow hotel.
