Dutch city of Rotterdam gets the 3D Apple Maps imagery and Flyover [Update: Strasbourg & Malmö too]

Apple Maps has brought 3D imagery and a Flyover tour to the Netherlands for the first time, with Rotterdam leading the way. The second-largest city in the country, and home to one of the largest ports in the world, Rotterdam may have been selected for the proliferation of funky architecture.

Dutch site iculture put together the above video of the Flyover tour, which highlights among other places the Euromast tower – a popular tourist attraction – the Erasmusbrug single-sided suspension bridge and the famous (and very cute) Kubuswoningen cube houses.

Update: Strasbourg in France and Malmö in Sweden just got added too (via iGen).

Apple recently added nine other Flyover locations around the world, and switched from Google Maps to Apple Maps for the Find My iPhone service on iCloud.

Take a sneak peek inside the latest Apple Store ahead of tomorrow’s opening

Dutch site OneMoreThing has provided our first look inside the new Apple Store in The Hague, opening at 10am tomorrow. Unlike many stores, where Apple completely replaced the existing interior of the building, it appears in this case to have retained some of the original features, including light-fittings.

The same approach has been taken with the exterior, where Apple has restored the existing doors rather than replacing them with all-glass ones.

It will be interesting to see whether this is an approach Apple is taking only with selected stores, or whether it forms part of a new look to future stores.

This will be Apple’s third retail store in the Netherlands, alongside Amsterdam and Haarlem. The first 1,000 visitors to the store will receive a free commemorative t-shirt. You can see more photos over at OneMoreThing of the interior and exterior.
