subway station

A hectic and modern “people mover” at Kop van Zuid in Rotterdam. Metro links to offices (Taxation Department, Courthouse, KPN, Port Authority), schools (INHolland) and entertainment (Nieuw Luxor Theatre, the LantarenVenster Film Theatre, Photo Museum). Completed in 1997 based on a design by Zwarts & Jansma architects. Unique characteristic: the sloping platforms that provide an extra spatial effect. Since late 2011, the RandstadRail metro between The Hague and Rotterdam Central Station terminus Slinge, has stopped at Wilhelminaplein. Checked fact: Rotterdam got the Netherlands’ first metro link on 9 February 1968 (5.9 km long): it linked Central Station with Zuidplein.
