Welcome to the heart of the Rotterdamse Dakendagen festival 2019! During the entire weekend, you can spend some time relaxing on the platforms of former Hofplein Train Station with a bite, drink or good cup of coffee. Enjoy continuous live music, specially programmed for us by De Nieuwe Lichting. On Saturday, there is an electro-soul hip-hop vibe and, on Sunday, there will be a lazy jazzy afternoon. Our central ticket office, the information desk and the starting point for various tours are also located here. Do you want to know what the Rotterdamse Dakendagen festival is all about and what the perfect activity is for you? Don’t hesitate to ask us at the desk!

About this rooftop
Luchtpark Hofbogen is part of a 1.9-kilometre viaduct, which had been used for the train connection between Rotterdam and The Hague since 1909. Until 2010, the RandstadRail ran through here. Since then, it has been quiet for a long time and, for years, it was unclear what was going to happen to the train station. The beautifully renovated arches in the plinth were filled with shops, offices and restaurants, but the roof remained empty. But this has now changed (partly)! Luchtpark Hofbogen was officially opened as a city park last year (during the Rotterdamse Dakendagen). The final purpose of the rest of the viaduct will remain uncertain for a while. Perhaps a green strip in the style of The High Line in New York? For the time being, the people of Rotterdam are still speculating and dreaming about the future function of this monumental object.
Official opening of the Rotterdamse Dakendagen + Friday afternoon drinks
Friday 31 May from 17:00 onwards, we would be happy to welcome you to the best Friday afternoon drinks of the year. At the heart of the festival, we will toast to the fifth edition of our festival. The official opening will be at 18:30! Want to end your working week in style? Come join us at the heart of our festival.
