Travel Tips for visiting Rotterdam

Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe and the eighth largest in the world.

Rotterdam is the second-largest city in Holland after the capital.

Holland was heavily bombed and Rotterdam was not spared during the Second World War. The city has been completely rebuilt to restore the image of this iconic place
Only two and a half hours from Paris by Thalys, you should not miss this city with its unsuspected charm. Multicultural Rotterdam has many attractions: exhibitions, design architecture, a vast seaport, infinite canals, and an almost magical ambiance. Come visit Europe's largest port!

Europe's first port city is hard to get used to.

The city is an architectural melting pot, mixing old monuments and ultramodern buildings, the urban forest reaching up to the sky in bold shapes.
Like New York, Rotterdam also includes a district where typical houses line the banks of the Maas River.
This is where most of the restaurants, bars, and coffee shops are concentrated, mainly squatted by tourists.

At nightfall, the European Manhattan reveals all its charms.

The light projections tint the buildings with bright colors that are reflected in the water. This is the perfect time to board a river shuttle, whether for a short walk or a visit to the gigantic container port.

During your stay, take the opportunity to leave the motor vehicles behind. You can take a water taxi for a ride on the water. Rotterdammers are also very fond of cycling. Do as they do, it's still the best way to get to know the city.
