Completed in 1991, this is the largest building in the Netherlands. Until the construction of ?Montevideo?, it was also the highest skyscraper in the country. Its window front makes it a popular object for photographies. The building is used by the insurance company ?Nationale Nederlanden? which also has offices in other impressive skyscrapers around the country. Delftse Poort 1 has a height of 151 meters and 41 floors. It is only topped by "Montevideo" (152 meters) because of the new building's "M". But even without this letter, it will lose the place soon. The Maastower (Maastoren) is a new building being constructed at Rotterdam's Kop van Zuid. It will be finished in 2008 and will have a height of 165 meters.
From a certain distance, it may even serve you as an orientation point: It stands next to the central station and is easy to distinguish from other skyscrapers.

Directions: Just next to the central station, impossible to miss...
