Van Nelle Factory

Van Nelle Factory

The former Van Nelle factory is considered the most important industrial monument in the Netherlands and as such was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in June 2014.

Renovated complex

All facilities for employees had to be available in the ingenious building and the building had to be completely above ground to create light, air and space. Tobacco was still made in the Van Nelle factory well into the 1990s. The complex was renovated and redesigned in 2000. Since then, it has hosted a variety of media and design companies and 12 rooms can be used for meetings, conferences and events for up to 7,000 people.

The Van Nelle Factory can be reached by bus 38 from Rotterdam Central Station. Cars can park in one of the parking lots just outside the site, opposite the main entrance.
