architour has been organizing professional architecture tours in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and other cities since 2004. All tours are guided and designed by experienced architects.
architour organizes tailor-made group excursions to architecture and urban design, and gives a glimpse behind the scenes of Dutch design culture. All tours are led by experienced local architects. Urban designs and building concepts are explained in an entertaining and informative way. We also provide a lot of background information about architects, the development process and the urban context. architour maintains excellent relationships with the local architecture scene, universities and cultural institutions. We follow the latest developments closely and can give you the best recommendations for your excursion.
Tours are available in Dutch, English, German, French and Japanese.
We offer lectures on various topics in English, German and Dutch. Lectures can be booked as part of a tour program or take place separately. Themes include "Amsterdam - City on the IJ", "Rotterdam: Modern Harbour City with History", "Sustainability: The Dutch Touch" and "Social Housing in the Netherlands".
architour produces audiotours to interesting areas in the city. The audiotours are available online. All you need is a smartphone and headphones.
Our architecture quiz can be played online or offline, individually or in a team. 40-60 multiple choice questions are waiting for you, presented live and accompanied by lots of photos, video clips and music.
We can support you with hotel recommendations and making reservations for coaches, tour boats and restaurants. We are happy to put together a complete program for your group.
