Why Visit Rotterdam?

Rotterdam is a testament to Dutch resilience and ingenuity. After being heavily bombed in WWII, the city transformed itself into a hub of modern architecture and design. It's a vibrant, ever-changing metropolis that offers a unique blend of cultural diversity and a strong sense of community.

The city's maritime heritage is palpable at the bustling Port of Rotterdam. At the same time, its commitment to sustainability can be seen in initiatives like the floating farm and the park built atop a water storage facility. Rotterdam is a city that doesn't just adapt; it reinvents.

Art enthusiasts and history buffs will find refuge in Rotterdam's museums, which house everything from old masters to contemporary installations. The city's art scene is as varied as its skyline, with spaces like the Kunsthal and the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum.

The Maas River is the city's lifeline, a place for leisure and reflection. Take a harbour tour to see the city from a different perspective, or enjoy the riverside ambience as the sun sets.
