Discover new space during the Rotterdamse Dakendagen 2021

Published on: 08 Apr 2021

This year from 4 to 6 June the Rotterdamse Dakendagen (Rotterdam Rooftopdays) are all about discovering new space. Now that parks and nature reserves seem overcrowded, the roof landscape can provide much-needed space for residents and visitors to the city.

What we wíll do

The cancellation of the Rooftop Walks does not mean that we are no longer organizing activities this year. In the coming months we will become even more flexible than we already were! Instead of walking en masse (but individually on different roofs) for one weekend, we will be organizing as many separate, small roof activities as possible from mid-June and in July. Think of roof walking XS spread over several weekends, tours in small groups and sports on roofs. The Knowledge Day will also take place completely online this year on Friday 4 June. Tickets for this are now on sale. In addition, you can already admire the Dakletter project on the roofs around the Coolsingel (from street level).

International Knowledge Day

On Friday June 4, the annual Knowledge Day takes place. An in-depth programme for professionals and rooftop enthusiasts. The day starts with the first Rooftop Farmers Congress, organised together with Rotterdams Milieucentrum (Environtmental Centre Rotterdam). The audience can participate in informal Lunch Workshops, guided by international experts. Together with AIR the event TOP^ will be organised. TOP^ covers keynotes about the latest rooftop developments and discussions between architects and policy makers from Rotterdam and their international colleagues about ‘the layered city’.

Full program and ticket sales

The complete programme will be announced at the beginning of May. Ticket sales have started. Keep an eye on the website for more information and updates.
