The Van Nelle Fabriek


The Van Nelle Fabriek started as a flagship of industrial Dutch architecture. Rotterdam’s national design icon was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2014. The era of coffee, tea and tobacco may be over. But today, the Van Nelle Fabriek is a symbol of vitality and modernity – a legendary venue for events and presentations.
