Rotterdam tradition

In 1970, Rotterdam organised a manifestation that included a 2 km long ski lift through the city centre. This is part of a Rotterdam tradition of iconic events at great heights, like the build of the Euromast for the Floriade and ‘the Stairs’ in 2016, signifying 75 years of rebuilding after WWII. The Rooftop Walk was meant as an addition to the celebrations surrounding Eurovision. Covid-19 made this impossible, but in 2022 the plan was revitalised by support from the municipality of Rotterdam and many others.
