The location of the 2020 Eurovision Village in Rotterdam has been unveiled.
The City of Rotterdam is all set to embrace the Eurovision Song Contest with open arms. The 2020 Eurovision Village will be housed at Rotterdam’s iconic Binnenrotte, located in the heart of Rotterdam.
Binnenrotte is located in the heart of the city, next to one of Rotterdam’s most famous architectural marvels, the Markthal.
Some of Rotterdam’s iconic sights are located near the Binnenrotte: Markthal, Blaak Station, Central Library and Librijesteeg.
Binnenrotte was originally the part of the Rotte river within the buildings of Rotterdam. In 1871 the Binnenrotte was filled in for the construction of the railway viaduct in the Rotterdam-Dordrecht line. The viaduct was demolished after the construction of the Willemsspoort tunnel in 1993.
Today Binenrotte serves as the home to Rotterdam’s Central Market which opens on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Binnenrotte is located near many of Rotterdam’s main attractions ( Markthal, Rotterdam Library, Blacktooren etc) and is well communicated and easily accessible.
