The Euromast is already one of Rotterdam’s key attractions, but now it’s added another element to draw in even more thrill seekers: this week, the tower unveiled a new glass floor in its Euroscoop lift.
Euromast's attractions for thrill seekers and daredevils
Since it opened to the general public back in 1960, the Euroscoop observation tower in Rotterdam has added plenty of fun and thrilling activities to attract the more daring among us. Nowadays, visitors can enjoy a meal or a drink at Euromast’s sky-high restaurant, or abseil down the 100-metre-high tower.
Another option for those on the hunt for the perfect views of the city is to head up in the Euroscoop lift, which offers 360-degree views of Rotterdam accompanied by a colourful light show and lively music by DJ Oliver Heldens.

To make the Euroscoop experience even more thrilling, this week the tower unveiled a brand new feature - which is certainly not for the faint of heart: a glass floor! To those in the lift, the floor seems to disappear beneath their feet, providing them with a “breathtaking view” which will make them “feel like [they’re] floating above the city.”
Luckily, for those who aren’t so keep on the idea, the glass can fog up again at the push of a button.
