Blaak Station

Rotterdam Blaak is a railway station and metro station located in the centre of the city, between the cube houses and the Markthal.

On May 2, 1877, the first railway station on this location was opened, then called Rotterdam Beurs. This station was part of a 2.2 km (1.4 mi) long viaduct. After the station had been destroyed during World War II, a new station opened in 1953, called Rotterdam Blaak.

When the underground metro station, which opened on 6 May 1982 was built, space was already reserved for a possible underground railway station directly underneath the metro station. On 15 September 1993, this new underground railway station was opened, as part of a 2.8 km (1.7 mi) long tunnel. This tunnel, including the station, now had 4 tracks instead of the 2 on the viaduct.
