The depot has a (literally) glistening exterior and a spectacular interior. Another special experience awaits visitors who take the express lift to the sixth floor. The depot’s roof not only provides a spectacular panoramic view of the city, but it also has a a restaurant, named Renilde, beautifully situated in a green oasis. And all of this in the heart of Rotterdam!
Restaurant Renilde, the name
Renilde Hammacher-van den Brande was curator at Boijmans from 1962-1978. She laid the foundation for one of the most important museum collections of modern art in the Netherlands. In addition to our Rothko, Renilde also bought work by Dalí, Magritte and Man Ray, among others. She also made major exhibitions in the museum, such as the legendary Dalí exhibition in 1970, which was opened by the surrealist master himself. Renilde Hammacher passed away in 2014 at the age of 101.
