Visit the Van Nelle Factories with Chabot

Along the bank of the river Schie lies a remarkable UNESCO World Heritage site: the Van Nelle Factory. The unique building from 1931 is considered to be the symbol of Dutch modernism. The factory is world famous for its progressive design, in which air, light and space gained an entirely new role in architecture. It is without a doubt one of the most extraordinary buildings in town. Even Le Corbusier called it “the most beautiful spectacle of the modern age”.

Visit the Van Nelle Factory – UNESCO world heritage site since June 2014 – with an experienced guide from the wonderful Urban Guides. Devotees of architecture, art and industrial heritage will thoroughly enjoy themselves with a museum visit and a tour.
