Rotterdam Rooftop Walk closes with over 200,000 visitors

Large audience experienced the roofscape and gained new perspectives on the future for cities

After a two day extension, the Rotterdam Rooftop Walk has closed its doors for good. 204,000 tickets were sold for the temporary walkway, which was accessible for 32 days. The exhibition on creative rooftop use featuring a bridge over the Coolsingel at a height of 29.5 metres, was a great success. The goal was for a large audience to experience the potential of flat rooftops for green, recreation, living space, sustainability and arts and culture. A new perspective on the future of the city, where the urban roofscape is fully utilised to the benefit of all city dwellers. For organiser Rotterdam Rooftop Days, the results have exceeded all expectations. The exhibition on the rooftops can be viewed again on, where all the different innovations have been highlighted.

The organisation plans to keep organising large projects on rooftops, but the Rooftop Walk will not return in the exact same form. From 1 to 4 June 2023, there will be another edition of the Rotterdam Rooftop Days.
