Urban Safaris – 21 October

Welcome to Rotterdam!

ISOCARP2015 offers its participants an introduction to Rotterdam by organising three urban safaris on the 21st of October through the city.

The safaris will start at Rotterdam Central Station where a guide will take the participants on one of the three carefully selected routes to the venue of the congress, the Submarine Wharf.

The Urban safaris (35 euros each) consist of routes and stops and are linked to various Rotterdam themes:

Urban Safari #1: Entrepreneurs + Architecture

Urban Safari #2: Entrepreneurs + (Multi) cultural

Urban Safari #3: Cultural + Harbour City

During the safaris participants get in touch with several layers of the city, both urban hotspots as iconic ‘must sees’.
