The Market Hall in Rotterdam, is a residential and shopping complex located between the Hoogstraat, Binnenrotte and Blaak. Within the complex there are 228 apartments, nearly five thousand square meters of retail space, 1,600 m2 of catering space and a large indoor market.
The shape of the building is perhaps particularly, but the inside is truly amazing! Artist Arno Coenen created the greatest work of art in the Netherlands: the Horn of Plenty. With its area of 11,000m2 and bright colors, it is not surprising that it is also called the Sistine Chapel of Rotterdam.
